Posted on Wednesday December 31, 1969
RTÉ's General Election Televised will air tonight live from Limerick, the first time a leaders debate has been held outside of the Capital City. The second debate of the election with just 1 more to follow. The next will be on RTÉ One live from Dublin, as the proposed TG4 debate has been called off. Seven parties are due to debate, with The Green Party excluded following a short legal battle earlier today. The parties will debate their policies for the next 5 years and in some cases beyond. Labour just launched its manifesto, and the current polls show Fine Gael at 28%, Labour at 8%, Fianna Fail at 18%, Sinn Fein at 20%, Social Democrats on 4%, AAA-PBP 3%, The Green Party at 2%, Renua at 1% and Independents at 16%.

Interviews from a Job-seekers Perspective
Posted on Friday July 01, 2016
Anyone who's every been long enough unemployed knows what it is like to be on the other end of an interview. No one should be surprised when employees stay in a company for more than 5 years, the fear of putting yourself on the line for a new job is better left to people actively seeking employment. Many people might say that they hate their job but you can be gaurenteed the same people hate job hunting just as much. We take a look at 5 questions that will put off the most seasoned job hunter. Each of these question are straight forward but to are not good questions to ask at an interview. It also depends on the wage that you are offering. If its a part time position to my mind you have no real reason to ask these 5 questions and if the position is for under 15euro.

The Fall of UTV in Ireland
Posted on Saturday July 16, 2016
In 2001 UTV (proper) had a market share of 10% south of the border. In the 1990s it benefited great from Ray Burke's limits on RTÉ advertising. It was the de facto commercial Television service. In 2001 TV3 and RTÉ2 also had an audience share of 10% each. By 2014 on the announcement of UTV Ireland UTV (proper) had just 3% of the market. You can imagine why, when TV3 dropped Coronation Street, UTV saw this an opportunity to regain lost ground.

Graham Norton Purely a Publicity Stopping Off Point
Posted on Friday July 01, 2016
When Graham Norton started his first Chat Show on Channel 4 in the Early 2000s, it was an irreverent mix of audience participation and an eccentric mix of guests from soap to Hollywood. Some were just part of something current, while the rest had that nostalgic effect that we required post-millennium. Graham Norton was always going to have to tone it down for BBC One but after 10 years on the BBC his show has become nothing more that a celeb fest promoting the latest cinematic releases. Indeed many of the guest now look tired.
