RTÉ Strategy 2018 – 2022
This strategy sets RTÉ on a sustainable path where public service media (PSM) will be re-imagined for a new generation. It aims to connect with and engages everyone, wherever they are. On that path, RTÉ will continue to deliver high-quality, distinctive Irish content across its traditional channels and services, while it grows and experiments in the digital space. In an increasingly global and more competitive market, RTÉ will put audiences at the centre of its thinking and will adapt to remain relevant to all audiences.

‘Ensuring a sustainable future for RTÉ’s orchestras’
In April 2018 RTÉ published a report following an independent review of its provision of orchestral services. The independent report, entitled ’Ensuring a sustainable future for RTÉ’s orchestras’ was carried out by former Director of BBC Radio and of BBC News, Helen Boaden, with the support of strategy consulting firm, Mediatique.
This extensive and in-depth independent review looked at the best way of providing high-quality and sustainable orchestral services to the Irish public, and covered both the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra (RTÉ NSO) and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra (RTÉ CO).

Language Scheme for RTÉ
This Language Scheme is prepared under Section 11 of Acht na dTeangacha Oifigiúla, 2003 (the Official Languages Act 2003, hereafter the Act). This Act is the first piece of legislation to provide a statutory framework for the delivery of services through the Irish Language.

Meáin Ghaeilge RTÉ – Action Plan 2015 – 2019
The Irish language is many things in Ireland. It is the living community language of the Gaeltacht. It is the language of the schoolyard in hundreds of Gaelscoileanna around the country. It is something to be spoken while abroad in order to define one’s identity. For some, it’s a source of resentment. For others, it is nothing beyond italics on signposts.
