Yes TV3 are there but compared to rte tv3 are WAY behind!



i think fidures were 650,000for RTE6.01 and 150,000 for TV3 5.30.



What is SNI-probably the same as the amount of people who watch "The Angelas" on TG4!!!

Very few things in life are overnight success stories. I suggest you give it a few months to become established before you let yourself get so nihilistic about it.

"NIHILISTIC": can i have the English version of that word.



(is that a slovenian word for Moynahan?)

But yeah i will give it time-it is a sort of summary of news!

And Grainne and Lisa are always worth tuning in for!

Oh yes, most definitely! - That's one of the most sensible things you've said. - Tune in for them, if nothing else. Then you can watch the improvements as they happen, and still be happy. (Rome wasn't built in a day!)

I actually thought this evenings 7pm bulletin was quite good actually......id like to hear peoples opinions on Eibhlin N? Chonghaile---she takes a bit of getting used to but overall I think she is rather good!

Well, with regards to Eibhlin, I can't take to her at all. I can quite put my finger on the exact reason why.



You're dead right Newsroom, the bulletin is improving. I'm not quite sure why they had Lisa Burke in Dublin again though.



Last night after the break Grainne was doing a live interview with 3 guests outside the Conrad Hotel. When the interview finished she threw back to the studio where Brian Daly delivered the sports news. By the time he had finished Grainne was back in the studio for the rest of the bulletin.

I'll give some Limerick solidarity to Eibhl?n, as she is based in the city. I can't say I ever noticed her much on TG4 or RT?, but I do think she is doing okay. As Newsroom said, it's just a case of getting used to her really. I can't say she's done anything wrong anyway. Give her some time, she's doing quite well in her new surroundings.

You're dead right Newsroom, the bulletin is improving.


I always thought they would get better, I never expected them to be an impressive overnight sensation! These things take time. But the Sky News Ireland bulletins are making steady progress, getting better week by week as things settle down and people at Sky News Ireland get used to their new jobs.

Next week they have each of the leaders of the political parties being interviewed by Grainne in the 10pm bulliten. It starts Monday and runs for 6 nights.



Are RTE or TV3 doing anything similar?

RTE usually put a reporter following the leader round the country----in fairness to my ex-employer,they really do put extremely carefully thought out effort and make quality programmes about things like the elections.

But I'm interested in seeing these interviews....thnks for that info.
