    SNI really needs a chief reporter or something in that line. we havent got anyone to cover health, crime, polotics etc. all these people are in the UK so we need someone who can cover them all for us.

    I certainly think Ray should be the chief news correspondant, I can see him taking over charlies job when or if he ever retires.

    Hi Trotsky

    No bad ice pick jokes…maybe. How’s Lenin doing? Seen Stalin lately?
    sorry, I couldn’t resist. This has nothing to do with Sky Ireland. I’m sorry.

    i just think eibhlin’s reporting is so un profissional. i tink shed make a better news assistant news presenter. Ray/ Brian Daly i think would be best. Still Charlie hinted a possible move from RT? on tuberty tonight last sat. nite. He said he has seen the same stories for the last 26 years and its the same stuff all the time. Imagine it ” Charlie Bird, Sky News, The High Court” Has a nice ring to it. Sky could do with a irish political reporter aswell. With all due respect to Alison Murphy she wasn’t great at it when ray & brian went on holidays.

    Well if charlie bird has seen the same stories for the past 26 years, then I’m sure he WOULD NOT like to report them again on a dormant, ailing unprofessional, left-wing, hypocriotical, working class, unprofessional, biased, mistake making unbelieveable shitty news service like Sky News IRELAND.

    – I’m sorry but someone has to stick up here. What charlie may have meant was that he’d rather go to foreign affairs, RTE are going to the trouble spots now, they’ve adopted a lot of sky news technques and ahve improved enormously. Sky News Ireland is now in single digit thousand ratings (that means less than 10 thousand) – why would he want to go there?

    I’m sorry but SNI is failing because of the dickheads in the office upstairs. 24 hour news netork and the won’t do continuous coverage in the vevnings, they continue to make slip ups, dozens of editorial mistakes, and they’re still only reporting mon-frid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Sky News should make ME their head of News Ireland. ME – with absolutely no experience or qualifications on how to run a news service, and I believe whole-heartedly that I’d do a better job than whatever gobshit they have have there at the moment – and if he doesn’t get his act together I’m sure he’ll get sacked soon.

    Maybe a little reality check here people!

    Where are SKY going to find enough stories to do, rolling, continuous news in the evenings?

    Where are SKY going to get the resources to do this?

    What would be the point when traditionally most households it would seem are watching soaps etc during TV prime-time?

    I agree with you people that what is being put out at the moment is pretty dire, but let’s wait and see what happens in the new year when they hire the extra reporters and staff.

    And before anyone says that RTE can produce an hour at six do please remember the size of the staff in the RTE newsroom, it’s a multiple multiple of what SKY News Ireland has.

    Rant complete………………..for now!

    They are always failing to end their bulletins on time because they have more to cover – notice they frequently get cut off before grainne can say oiche mhaith.

    Where are SKY going to get the resources to do this?

    We’re thinking of thw wrong Sky here, I’m referring to Sky News, the big 24/7 news network owned my the Multi-Billionaire and global medi tycoon Rupert Murdoch. – 62 Euro a month isn’t it? Sky Digitals top package for Ireland? On top of the fact that all adverts on Sky TV in Ireland are seperate Irish ads, generating extra income wink wink.

    What would be the point when traditionally most households it would seem are watching soaps etc during TV prime-time?

    Thank you for aggreeing with me, so whats the point in having ithe first ione at 7 when Emmerdale is on TV3, Nationwide on RTE1, Student lovable programme on most of the other channels, see what I mean – so why not start at 5 and end at 10. They can do the news on the half hour if they don’t ahve enough stories. – its a 24/7 news channel – if they do put on continuous news, there not going to show it in place of our favourte TV shows, because they are on the other channels. Of course there is room for it- both tv3 and rte have 3 bulletins in the evening time, TG4 even have a bulletin that at this stage likely gets more ratings than SNI – lets not forget that even if you want to accept this mick -mous two half our bulletins in the evening thing – there isn’t any on the weekend!!! – you have to watch the competition on saturday and sundays!!! – so whats the point in bothering to watch SNI?

    Are you sure that doesn’t mean he is Sky in generals Ireland correspondant – notice that whenever Sky UK go LIVE to Dublin, they usually speak to Ray.
