The RTE Radio Centre in Montrose has 13 radio studios, all underground, and can easily accommodate three main stations programming of Radio 1, 2FM and Lyric FM.


Managed to get a quick read of it and if the reports are true the Radio Centre won't exist ( it's the land they are talking about selling , not the building , because it's near the bit they have sold already ) and they reckon building work on that section would be disruptive anyway .

I never said anything about the RTE Radio Centre in Dublin not existing.

It seems RTE are content with closing down their Cork centre to save money, so they are most certainly thinking about consolidating their building portfolio and centre it in Dublin.

I assume when they close the Cork studios, they will simply hire out office space for their regional reporters from a cheaper office building in Cork city, and include a few radio studios and that will be it.

Production of the Today Show will move next year to the Dublin studios, as there is plenty of room and would save money than using a large television studio and production team in Cork.

The John Creedon Show and other Cork based radio programmes will then come from the new scaled down Cork office or maybe John's show will move to Dublin.

RTE Radio Centre at Montrose in Dublin is there and should be fully used, make use of every studio, to save as much money as possible. If there are radio studios lying empty in Montrose, it is a waste of money.

Oh, and just to clarify, my previous post is my thoughts on what will happen, and not 100% for sure what will happen, just in case some one wants to nit pick what I say, as happens often on here.

I just outlined what I consider RTE are thinking about and the possible decision they would make with regards to their Cork centre.

As I predicted, Lyric FM will be leaving Limerick if their plans go through too. I had a hunch they would consolidate their radio output to Dublin, in their 13 studio radio centre at Montrose, and I think I was right.

RTE Raidio na Gaeltachta will stay in Galway and the west, as it is home of the Gaeltacht, so I don't see any move from there.
