This week: RTÉ revelations, Shelbourne’s price tag, Lynn’s conviction

This week we have extensive coverage of RTÉ, as well as an exclusive Red C poll that shows a much-needed bump for Sinn Féin

Dear reader,

It has been another week of controversy for RTÉ but this time Catherine Martin has brought the problems to the government’s door.

The Green media minister’s extraordinary intervention on RTÉ on Thursday has escalated the tensions between government and the national broadcaster.

Cónal Thomas has fresh revelations which are sure to ensure the matter stays on the political agenda into next week.

As part of our coverage of the biggest story in the Irish media sector for some time, Killian Woods gets inside the RTÉ boardroom as the events unfolded and Daniel Murray gets insight into what it all means for the future funding model.

Elsewhere, Marion McKeone and Colm Lauder look at two very different problems facing the commercial property markets in the US and Ireland.

Michael Lynn’s conviction last week is digested by Ian Guider as he profiles a poster boy of the Celtic Tiger’s roguery.
