Pretty convincing victory for the SNI relaunch it would seem.



I wonder how the new look shows will develop and impact on TV3 News and RTE News' share of audiences. It is clear bosses in Dublin are working hard to build on such a grand opportunity. I just wish that Scotland may eventually get the same bite of the cherry.



Grainne is also a cracking presenter.

the 6:30 bulletin, if I'm correct has no ad-breaks, which means Gr?inne now has her extra time to question ministers and there is more news overall.



Considering that TV3 is unprofessional, has no grasp of foreign affairs, not many good journalists and its reports have a rediculous left-wing slant and RT? spend a whole hour between 6-7 waffling and waffling on about rubbish that most people don't care about, I think that if Sky News market their new look, new slot 6:30 news properly and if every bulletin is compelling, then they could be in a position to take a large share of the market at that time, particularly from TV3.



I like Sky's "eye on ireland report", if they can produce one of those almost every night - they could be in a position to swipe the Irish news service of the year... maybe next year.

Claire Byrne is a first class presenter/journalist. I think that if she had the opportunity - she'd shine more. Perhaps TV3 must look at ways of beefing up their news and using Claire's skills. I think that they'll loose her if they don't act now.

Claire Byrne is a first class presenter/journalist.all the Byrnes are first class at everything they do. - We're the warrior clann. - I should re-state that TV3 is unprofessional *except for the two Byrnes that report/present there.



SNI would be a lot better if they hired a few members from the Byrne clann!

its been nearly a month now and i'm glad to say sni has not gone back to its old ways. it is constently improving. enda brady is a good reporter and a great addation to the team. tonight grainne interviewed eamon dunphy before the show at his house and then went back to the studio. glad to see she is been made work. we still havent seen the other side of the studio. have they scrapped it or is i undergoing a major revamp?? the only thing that they need to do is when the reporter is telling whats ahead on sky news at 10, they need to break into that feed and say what ahead on sni. theres no point in us knowing whats on sn@10 if we are not watching it!



no mention yet on skyprogramme website of sni budget special like they had last year! hope they do it was very good last year

i noticed tonight that on the monitor of one of the pc's just left of Ray Kennedy 'The Panel' was on. I always taught they done nothing in the background but I guess this proves it. I know the picture quality is bad but that Dara O'Brien on the tv.

I saw tonights programme at 10pm, and I thought it was very good. im sure the people in the background don't just watch telly, otherwise the programme wouldn't have improved so much since the relaunch. How many people actually work there?

sky news ireland will break into sky news todays coverage next wednesday to show the budget. it starts at 3.30pm and runs until 4.30pm but last year they ran over the time they were suppost to. Will they unvail the rest of the studio then???

I dont see it happening, unless Sky start broadcasting a seperate stream for Scotland, Sky News Ireland exists because Sky operate a RoI feed, with local adverts...
