Tommy Tiernan will be in the slot for a couple of months and then a female presenter will take over until Ray returns in the autumn

They’ve piloted three female hosts, all of whom did really well apparently.

They’re hawking Tiernans show around the agencies at the moment looking for a title sponsor for €120,000.

RTÉ is seeking €120,000 in sponsorship for a new Saturday night primetime slot featuring Tommy Tiernan - starting on January 4 - as it shortens Ray D'Arcy's weekend run.

The presenter, whose €450,000 salary makes him the second highest-paid broadcaster in the organisation, has been at the centre of speculation in recent times about the future of his TV programme.

His fifth series of chat-shows will come to an end in December and he will be replaced by Tiernan when the comedian takes over the coveted 9.30pm slot with a 10-week run in a major schedule reshuffle.

The funnyman's chat show - which had an average audience of more than 300,000 over the summer - will run until the middle of March. D'Arcy's show attracts similar viewing figures.

Described by RTÉ as a "master of improvisation and thinking on his feet", a publicity blurb said that Tiernan's series has produced "many water-cooler moments", including memorable chats with U2's Adam Clayton and actor Barry Keoghan.

Furthermore, a new Saturday night programme featuring a female presenter has gone into pre-production, with five different presenters being invited to screen-test for the 2020 show.

An RTÉ spokesperson said D'Arcy would still be returning to the channel in 2020 and they were "very happy" with the ratings for his Saturday night show.

It's understood it will run later in the new year, perhaps in the autumn.

Does Tommy Tiernan not realise that hats are for outdoor wear?

Maybe it’s a Nike/Adidas/Puma or whoever sponsors it hat?

Tommy thinks he looks like Don Draper in his porkpie hat.

In reality he more resembles a customer at the Buttevant horse fair.

Nice to see RTE's view of the country, watching RTE News last night the weather forecaster Jean Byrne mentioned that the Dublin City Marathon should have favourable weather............. ..... nothing else on over the weekend I suppose!

I actually noticed that too.

And it's not just RTÉ.

The commissioner for aviation regulation announced that it is going to reduce passenger charges at Dublin Airport, narrowing the gap between Cork and Dublin Airport passenger charges, making it less economically advantageous for airlines to operate out of Cork.

When queried about this, the commissioner's response was that it had not considered the impacts of changes to charges at Dublin on other regional airports to date but would before it makes its final determination.


So basically, a regulator based in Dublin making a decision about a massive carbon emitter in Dublin for which the whole country will have to pay carbon tax makes a decision which will negatively affect Cork Airport and when challenged responds: "Oh, we hadn't though of that."


But shut up and keep on paying your carbon taxes while we grow passenger numbers at Dublin Airport to 40 Million by 2030.

RTÉ is planning to spend €350,000 on upmarket hotel rooms for celebrities and contributors over the next two years.

The cash-strapped state broadcaster paid for about 1,150 bookings at four and five-star hotels in 2018, during which it recorded a net deficit of €13 million. It is now seeking tenders from quality accommodation providers to meet its needs for the next two years. The estimated value of the contract is €350,000 plus VAT.

Tender documents show that RTÉ intends to select a small number of hotel groups or individual hotels to provide four and five-star accommodation over the period. In addition to rooms for celebrities and contributors, the hotels may also have to provide conference rooms and concert venues.

The tender notes that hotels included on the panel will be expected to work with RTÉ on other projects, including advertisements, competitions and sponsorships, although “this is not the primary purpose of the partnership group”.

The contract is expected to be awarded in mid-December.
