Ferry FM Studio View

This is the view of Strangford Lough from the Ferry FM studio. There can’t be many radio stations that have a view as good as this. How lucky we are to have such amazing scenery on our doorstep.

Welcome to ferry fm

ferry fm first took to the airwaves during Gala Week 1995. The aim of the station is still the same: to keep everyone up to date with all the latest Gala news and of course, all the latest results.

If you’re stuck inside or can’t make it to an event, you won’t feel left out because we’ll always keep you in touch with what’s going on.

As the internet has grown so much over the last few years, we hope that we have managed to bring Gala that little bit closer to all our “Ex-Ports” – in recent years we have had listeners from all over the world, join in the  festival fun.

We do hope you enjoyed our programming during Gala 2018 and we hope all our on-line listeners felt that little bit closer to home when tuning in, thank for all the feedback and we hope to be back on air in Gala Week 2019
