MarsFM started out life as Maynooth Broadcasting Society and has become one of the biggest radio stations in the Kildare area. Over the years it fought many difficulties and challenges including finding a base for broadcasting and studio equipment. Since then it has managed to establish good relationships with the SU and other college radio stations, as well as a professional relationship with promotional company MCD. With an open door policy, Mars has welcomed every student of Maynooth University: from commuters, to mature, ILI and both under and post graduate students. Even those not involved with MarsFM as presenters or committee are welcomed simply by heading online and listening to those on air.
