    I think that Sky News Ireland and its reporters have covered this story very well since it broke yesterday. Both Eibhlin and Jonathan Healy have handled the questions from the UK Presenters fairly well although you could tell they were nervous. In the space of a year Jonathan Healy has gone from a city radio presenter to a reporting live on one of the worlds best news channels. What did you guys in England think of their reporting?

    I taought SNI’s coverage was unbelievable at 10 last night. I lost count of the number of live reports they had. they were live in cork, dublin and belfast on numerous occasions. The only problem was at half ten it was all over. If they had another half hour they could of shown all the other stories from that day which had been shown at seven. these stories were thrown in the bin for the 10pm show but another half hours coverage and we would of been able to see these stories aswell. Sharon Ni Bheolain only had about five min’s coverage on news on 2. Sky’s was far better!

    And if sky invested a 24-Hour Irish service well then they would certinly boost their ratings. Today when the gardai were giving their live interview in dublin sky news were over 3 minutes ahead of rte(irelands national tv station) with the speech. RTE were telling their viewers that they were live when it was quite obvious they were not. If sky had rolling news in Ireland people would certinly watch it.

    WELL DONE SKY!!

    I am absolutly discusded now to see that Gary Honeford is now live in Cork calling himself Ireland Correspondant. He shows up on tv once in a blue moon and still keeps that title. what was eibhlin doing wrong and why was he put on the job?? She knows just as much about the story as he does. hes based over 250 miles from Cork and eibhlin is just based 50 miles away. It doesn’t make any sence he has to travel over 6 hours to get to Cork while she can be there in an hour. its an absolute disgrase!!

    Tippguy, I didn’t read all you said in that message, because I’m just about to run out the door (apologies) but I gathyer its the usual pro-Sky News Ireland stuff. I have to say that SNI’s reporting of the bank raid is terrible. RT? have had much much better coverage, as have TV3 believe it or not. I mean, if you go back to the Garda questions earlier, RT?’s Paul Reynolds was asking most of the questions. I watched Sky News @ 9PM last night and they hadn’t even made a report by then. Sky News are way behind RT? on this topic.

    either way sf are in serious electoral trouble. SNI 24 HOURS DON’T THINK SO.

    but mrbyrne in that interview the guy who said nothing gave out to paul renolds for asking to much questions so i dont get your point. its nearly always the case that the national tv station gets the first question. renolds just taought it was a one on one interview. hes not used to so many reporters. i dont understand how sky are behind on the coverage. rte are more behind 3 minutes to be exact . as for tv3 they were too busy showing oprah while the statment was being red out. that means that nobody in Ireland could see this LIVE unless they had sky news. thats why we need sni 24/7.

    He asked the questions, thats the point. Who was there for Sky? Whoever it was, didn’t ask questions or else we couldn’t hear he/she (let me guess, it was Ray Kennedy?).

    its nearly always the case that the national tv station gets the first question

    it is?

    hes not used to so many reporters

    Really? So was that his first time at a press conference?

    thats why we need sni 24/7.

    -uneconomical, still wouldn’t get high viewer ratings. What they could do is have continuous SNI from lets say 5PM TO 11PM or 12 midnight. I reckon that would be economical and get ratings.

    So, Sky news are ahead then? Possible from a British perspective. I don’t know how Sky’s coverage compares to its British rivals. You’#d think with such a large Dublin bureau they’d deffinitely be able to have the best possible, outstanding coverage for the British audience, but I don’t think even that is the case. As I said earlier, Thursday night I watched Sky News @ 9PM and it was pathetic, from an Irish perspective. They went LIVE to Cork and Belfast, but no reports. Perhaps that is good reporting for the British population, but when such a dramatic devlopement occurs in certainly, one of the biggest Irish stories in the 21st century, you’d think that sky News Ireland would cut into regular schedule and report to the Irish audience. Now tell me – today is Saturday, I heard on the news today (and not Sky News, the bank raid wasn’t in the headlines when I turned it on this morning) that another person had been arrested after a tipp off that he had been burning sterling notes. Obviously yet again, another development, it’ll be on the news this evening – but what channel are you going to turn on today and tomorrow to get your news? I bet it won’t be Sky News Ireland! – They’re all on holiday for the week-end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    and that is why I don’t like Sky News Ireland, because its depressing to watch, when you consider what it could have been like. – Even FM10 bloody 4 can have news updates throughout the day.

    no ray was covering the political end at leinster house. jonathan healy was at the conference for sky. he asked alot of quetions but you could not here him very well your right but that was because he was getting ready to go live straight after the conference and he needed to get out quick.

    ya thats nearly alsways the case even adam boulton doesnt usually get the first question off tony blair.

    well renolds is used to just the irish media being there and hes the only one asking questions but yesterday rte, tv3, bbc, itv, sky,lots more tv stations and papers.

    the reason sky were not having any reports was because there was news constently coming in and if you made a report it would not include everything thats why they went live. rte can’t afford to go live that much thats why they had reports.

    that person was arrested last night it was on sni at 10.

    i know sni isn’t on today but to be honest even if it was i wouldnt be watching it but i see what your sayin. that why i want it 24/7 (the 7 indicates seven days a week just so you know ).

    5-12 might work but i’d still like news in the morning and when i’m not working i like news in the afternoon. the morning news on tv3 isnt great its way too short and then rte at 1 is also too short.

    I think Reynolds did great. He got to ask so many questions. Did you expect him to sit back, put up his hand and say gentlemen, could I please ask a question. He was quite determined. He’s a very good reporter.

    the reason sky were not having any reports was because there was news constently coming in and if you made a report it would not include everything thats why they went live. rte can’t afford to go live that much thats why they had reports.

    Yes, RTE can afford to LIVE, they certainly can in their own country. If you watched RT? News @ 9PM, which I did on Thursday seen as Skys coverage was terrible, I switched to RT? when they were done, you would see that RT? do go LIVE. They go LIVE in Ireland whenever they want. Phill Flynn even gave an interview to Charlie Bird.

    Tippguy, why don’t you, in future, watch RT? News @ 9PM also. They don’t usually do a lot of LIVE reports at that hour, but when they do, their reporters tell us something new. If you look at times when Sky News Ireland use their LIVE, they end up just reading out a report or else telling us stuff we’ve already heard.

    I must admit, I admire your loyalty to Sky News IRELAND. You wouldn’t happen to have a large amount of shares in BskyB, do you?

    Saying that, I hate RT? as much as you do. I hate paying 155 Euro a year for that terrible shambles. On RT?, I only watch the news, prime time and the sopranoes (but thats because they’re the first to get it in the British Isles). In fact, I hate all Semi-state bodies. But, with regards to RT? News, for Irish events, I don’t see any other option but to watch RT? News. Just like I don’t see any other option but to buy the irish times (but thats different, I actually like reading and agree with paying for the irish times, its value for money). However, I will continue to watch SNI from time to time, do please keep me informed on their performances (because, between me and you, you are actually the only person I know, that actually watches SNI!! :ph34r: )

    well obviously i didnt expect him to do that but a good reporter should never have to be told to stop. you never heard adam boulton etc. told to stop do you?

    i never said rte cant go live i said not as much which is quite obvious. Of course he gave it to rte. sky are only a year old and tv3 wouldn’t have anyone good enough to interview him.

    They don’t usually do a lot of LIVE reports at that hour, but when they do, their reporters tell us something new

    well often the same news reports are on at 1 that are on news on 2 so i dont get you. ok i understand sni go a bit overboard with the live stuff but its all trying to boost ratings. if you had watched sni’s coverage of the money find you’d of seen that every time the breaking news banner appered they were live for an update.

    i’d love to be able to watch rte news at 9 but i’m usually working till 12 thats why i usually watch sni on active cause theres no other news channels on.

    Unfortunatly i dont have shares in bskyb. wish i had though.

    well i hope that grainne is presinting for more than me to watch on active.

    Yes, I have. Why don’t you look at the advert about “making the necessary travel arrangements… treat public figures witht he respect they deserve…” advert and you’ll see Adam Boutlon being asked to cut the report.

    tv3 wouldn’t have anyone good enough to interview him.

    TV3 got the exclusive interview with Gerry Adams yesterday. did you not see it?

    i never said rte cant go live i said not as much which is quite obvious.

    I think they have the ability to go LIVE for as long as they want, whenever they want anywhere in IRELAND. They only use it when its necessary though. Sky News IRELAND like to show it off, but its old now. everyone can go LIVE, TV3 has the ability to go LIVE in Ireland now.

    but its all trying to boost ratings

    The problem is, their bulletins are too short and they go LIVE too often. Maybe if they had more bulletins and longer broadcasts, then it fit in well, but it looks pathetic because they end up reading a script, when they could do it in the studio or else they make mistakes. Eibhlin is terrible at going LIVE. Its counter-productive, It won’t win ratings unless its a big international story, in which case a lot of people will turn to Sky News anyway. But lets stick to Ireland, because its only Sky News IRELAND that annoys me.

    i’d love to be able to watch rte news at 9 but i’m usually working till 12 thats why i usually watch sni on active cause theres no other news channels on.

    Ok……….. well are you saying that you watch SNI on active from 9- 12 or that you watch it when you get home from work?

    well i hope that grainne is presinting for more than me to watch on active.

    Wouldn’t you agree that “You’re watching Sky News Ireland, brought to you nightly at 7 and 10” is in fact misleading or false advertising? If you can count that as advertising… its certainly a lie anyway. Strictly speaking, they should be forced to take that off.

    you’ll see Adam Boutlon being asked to cut the report

    thats not asking him to stop asking questions is it??

    TV3 got the exclusive interview with Gerry Adams yesterday

    no sorry i missed it. who asked the questions. but how was it an exclusive when rte radio and bbc had interviews with him also.

    I agree with you that sky news ireland go live way too much but some times it is necessary

    ya i’m working most nights on the late shift until 12am thats why i watch the sni replay.

    i no their programmes are way too short thats why i think now nearly 1 year one they should extend their bulitans to one hour. then slowly they can introduce as you suggested a 5-12 show and so on until it becomes 24/7

    i agree that the advert during the programme is stupid and misleading however mark cagney on ireland am often does the same. anyone that watchs the programme knows their times. as i’ve said before they should be putting ad’s on papers, radio etc. last night i went to the local cinema and they had an advert for rte two before the movie. i’ve also seen huge rte two ad’s on billboards. they should also make new adverts for sky news. if they do decide to advertise they need to put the times and channel its on because most people say to me they cant find the channel sky news ireland.
