Local branch of the well-known multinational label specialising in compilations and best of collections heavily advertised on TV. Launched in Ireland in 1972 with the "Dynamite" compilation. Releases followed the UK numbering system for a number of years. By 1977, K-Tel Ireland was manufacturing and exporting K-Tel product to Europe.

The first locally produced album was the 'Carousel 20 Top Irish Hits' compilation released in April 1978.

K-Tel licensed PWL for Irish release.
