Sadly all the leading roles for RTE The Movie are promised, however there may be a supporting roll or an extra coming up, no guarantees though."]Is Tarantino directing it? It would be a fair disaster movie in fairness.

I'd be a fairly nostalgic kind of fella but Holy fook I hate RTÉ now and think it's time to let it fold as its just a total waste of good money."]I still think it's important for the news and sports coverage whatever you think of the quality of those were never get the same amount of GAA coverage from private international companies. Other than that it's rare that they make anything that I find worth watching and couldn't care if they never attempt to make drama or comedy again"]Have Jedward a relative playing hurling with a certain prominent Limerick hurling side- their dad, I understand, is from Limerick."]I dont know but that mad fella who invaded the 2012 Olympic marathon and ran out on front of an F1 car was their uncle"]He isnt their uncle

Replying To KillingFields:  "Some posters here showing a few red thumbs and a bit of rejection towards RTE at the minute, my self-included, but if we were to point a finger at the top 10 issues that need immediate attention / fixing what would they be, I'll set the ball rolling with 7.
1. All vacancies to be clearly advertised for a timely period prior to the vacancy being filled.
2. All internal applicants to be guaranteed an interview after making the application.
3. DG position to be for 3 years, then, depending on success of internal projects, extra year(s) may be an option.
4. Should someone retire or accept redundancy, then that person should not have the option of returning on a contract
basis.
5. The appropriate minister should be seen to be taking a deeper interest in all that is RTE.
6. Promotions should be on merit only. Openness and transparency to apply.
7. Gender balancing a must.

Some of that would be illegal. You cant stop anyone from retiring/accepting redundancy and then returning to work.
Why should all internal applicants be guaranteed an interview? What jobs ensure that happens?
What exactly do you mean a minister taking a deeper interest in RTE? What do you want ministers to do?"
Your Killing me with all those questions, - Like, 1. Some of that would be illegal - Perhaps un-lawful but not illegal. 2. You can't stop anyone from retiring/accepting redundancy and then returning to work. - RTE is heavily unionized, HR and Union policy document / agreement should cover all eventualities. 3. Why should all internal applicants be guaranteed an interview - Good HR and Union working relationship. 4. What jobs ensure that happens? - All job's that fit the job description as advertised. 5. What exactly do you mean a minister taking a deeper interest in RTE? - He appears to be taking little or no part at the minute. 6. What do you want ministers to do? - Their job.

In no way would HR policy etc allow/cover what you suggest.
Yes it would be illegal and talking about unlawful/illegal is just getting into semantics.
You just cant stop someone who retires and comes back to work
Just because you are internal candidate doesnt mean you deserve an interview for a job. It isnt good for unions if people with no right or little right getting an interview simply because they are already in the organisation. would you recommend all other businesses to do the same as that7
You say take a deeper interest but what does that actually mean and doing more means what exactly?
And again you just say their job to number 6 but what do you actually want them to do?
