Ive been watching all the platforms today and RTE radio has been far the most impressive. Sean O Rourke has outshined Bryan Dobson, Pat Kenny and Vincent Browne. Their coverage has been exceptional and worthy of every acolade possible.

Did Parliament put their lower thirds on for the entire RTE coverage? Quite self explanatory to see that it was Live RTE coverage of the Irish election.

They dropped it a little while after RTE started the running totals graphic and brought out the LIVE bug.

I had neglected to mention that John Bowman is involved in RTÉ's coverage, albeit as a panelist rather than in his usual role of anchor.

The One O'Clock News today used captions that animated like the election captions, but were coloured in the normal RTÉ News colours.

RTE have just wrapped up their 'continuous' coverage.
