RTÊ Director General Dee Forbes
— Today with Claire Byrne (@TodaywithClaire) November 23, 2020
Further to Rtegate…
Chair of the Oireachtas Communications Committee Niamh Smyth has said events surrounding a retirement gathering at RTÉ are of huge concern and clarity and a forthright statement from the organisation is needed.
She told RTÉ’s Today with Claire Byrne she did not accept that it was an “impromptu” event and she said that the Communications Committee has a responsibility to ask questions about how this event happened in the first place.
We are in Level 5 lockdown, she said, “and this is an indoor social gathering”.
There was nothing “impromptu” about the RTÉ gathering during Level 5 restrictions.
Again, no management available to speak to @TodaywithClaire.
