How can I make an FOI request?


RTÉ regularly publishes a range of information on its website, so before submitting a request it might be useful to see if the information has already been published.

You can submit an FOI application by email at foi@rte.ie or by post at Freedom of Information Office, Administration Building, RTÉ, Donnybrook, Dublin 4. You may find it useful to use the FOI form here (https://static.rasset.ie/documents/about/foi-application-form.pdf) although it is not mandatory.

When submitting a request you must state that it is being made under the Freedom of Information Act and contain sufficient details to allow us to identify the records that are being sought and the format you wish to receive the records (i.e. paper, electronic etc.)

If you require help in formulating your request, the FOI unit will be happy to provide assistance.

If your request meets those criteria, you will receive an acknowledgement which states that RTE has 20 working days to respond. In certain circumstances a further 20 working days may be required to process your request. At the end of the process you will be contacted with our response to your request.
