I listen to RTE on long wave most days.

There is a survey on GB listenership here:

Most of my 'over the ether' listening is on analogue radio so it would be a great loss to me if RTE were to leave 252.

Are you telling me Atlantic 252 has closed?

No need for the phrase that pays then. I listen to Long Wave Radio - Atlantic 252...

Except that you haven't listened to Atlantic 252 for 11 years!

The LW version of Radio 1 which commenced in 2004, which can also be received across the United Kingdom and parts of Western Europe – and is transmitted on the 252 kHz frequency formerly used by the Atlantic 252 radio station

This relate to the closedown of the LW transmitter:

The RTÉ longwave service is to be extended until at least 2017.

RTÉ Radio 1 LW will operate a full service in 2015, with reduced hours in 2016 before working towards a full shutdown in 2017.

Currently, research funded by the Irish government is being conducted among the Irish community in Britain. The research aims to find out who is listening to the Longwave service, where they are and how they feel about RTÉ Radio 1 on Longwave.

The research will also try to establish if listeners have other ways of listening to RTÉ Radio 1.

It is important that all of those who listen in Britain to have their say in the future of the service. So we are asking you to become part of a short survey.

Taking part is easy... telephone the UK number that follows shortly. You will be connected to a voice mail where you will be asked to leave a message.

When prompted, please clearly state your name, address and phone number. Then, at the end of your message please say either “send me a form” or “call me”.

If you say "send me a form” a form will be posted to the address you have given with a stamped return envelope.

If you say "call me", you will be called back on the number you have given and the survey will be conducted over the phone. This should take about 10 minutes.
