RT News Announces New Agriculture & Consumer Affairs Correspondent


RT News is pleased to announce the appointment of Joe Mag Raollaigh as its new Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Correspondent. Currently the Editor of RT 's flagship political programme The Week in Politics, Joe has worked with RT News across radio, television and online since 2008.

A fluent Irish speaker, Joe will report in both English and Irish, contributing to RT News' digital, television and radio output, including Nuacht RT & Nuacht TG4.

Joe hails from Oranmore in Co. Galway. He was born in Boston, where his parents had emigrated in the 1960s, but the family returned in the early 70s and settled once again in Co. Galway. He attended NUI Galway where he earned a BA, an MA in Modern Irish and a Higher Diploma in Applied Communications.

He started his broadcasting career in Clare FM, hosting current affairs and farming radio shows before moving to TG4 after it was set up in 1996. In 2004 he was appointed Political Correspondent for TG4 and Nuacht RT , reporting from Leinster House. From 2008 while reporting for RT News, he continued to make Irish language reports for Nuacht TG4 and occasionally presented a current affairs program on RT Radio na Gaeltachta. He has also held the role as Editor for RT 's Leaders Questions and European Parliament Report programmes.

Speaking after his announcement as RT 's new Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Correspondent, Joe Mag Raollaigh said he is excited to take on the role. Farmers in Ireland are facing unprecedented challenges as they try and adapt to new environmental targets, rising costs and evolving consumer sentiment while still producing the high-quality food vital for us all. It's a time of change for us as consumers too, with inflation cutting deep into many household budgets. Value for money in goods and services is more important than ever. I look forward to bringing comprehensive coverage of these issues and more to RT audiences across online, radio and television in the years ahead.

Joe will be commencing his new role in February and will work out of RT 's Western Regional Studios in Galway.
