This Monday’s Shortscreen is THE SUFFERING KIND, directed by Kevin Liddy (Country; Horse..) and shot by Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas; In America; Breakfast on Pluto..).
It’s the story of a recently sober sanitation worker in upstate New York, getting through the days as best he can. He whiles away the hours, his woman gone though still around, his road getting narrower, his nights longer. Father Jim is an inner city priest keeping an eye on Micheal’s sobriety. The past is like a sad lullaby that haunts him so close it’s all he can hear. Then reality comes knocking.
RTÉ2: Monday @ 11:40pm

Local Heroes is an RTÉ-supported initiative focused on dealing with unemployment through local, citizen-lead initiatives.

The RTÉ TV series ‘Local Heroes – A Town Fights Back’ has shown Drogheda’s citizens coming together to jump-start their local economy and create jobs.

Their imaginative solutions to tackle unemployment, guided by experts, inspired us to create our own Limerick Local Heroes group.

There has been confirmation that Animo TV Production will have a team filming our town hall meeting in  the Strand Hotel on Monday 30 Jan 2012 from 6pm

The same crew was involved in the filming and production of the  RTE series ‘Local Heroes – A Town Fights Back‘ in Drogheda last year.

Our own local Red Paw Media, well known for productions like “Concy Ryan” and the Rubberbandits’ Horse  Outside, who had already kindly agreed to support the Limerick Local Heroes initiative , will also be filming the event.

Every community needs its Local Heroes!

Following the success of the first series last year Pat Shortt is back with Mattie. Filmed in the midwest with both local and national crew the two episodes are due to hit our screens around Christmas time this year.

RTÉ redevelopment ‘necessary’ for digital age

Posted: September 20, 2010 in media

An oral hearing into plans for a major redevelopment of RTE’s Donnybrook campus has heard that the realisation of ‘Project 2025’ is necessary if the national broadcaster is to meet the demands of the digital and high-definition age.

Under the proposal, all of RTÉ’s services would be housed in one purpose-built complex, which would include five new TV studios and a public plaza.
