RTÉ 2010s

In challenging financial times for RTÉ the broadcaster looks to switchover from analogue to digital transmission. In May 2011 RTÉ covers two major state visits and the funeral of a former Taoiseach within a week. 

A Prime Time Investigates programme 'Mission to Prey' accuses a Catholic priest Fr Kevin Reynolds of raping a woman and fathering a child. Fr Reynolds sued for defamation and a took a paternity proving his innocence. Director General Noel Curran said the broadcasting of 'Mission to Prey' was "one of the gravest editorial mistakes ever made" in the history of RTÉ.

Among the broadcasters who passed away were Gerry Ryan, Cathal O'Shannon and Philip Greene.
