Big shoes to fill! RTÉ update process of finding successor to Longford's Ciarán Mullooly as Midlands news correspondent
Nearly a year since Ciarán Mullooly retired from the Midlands news beat RTÉ has finally taken steps to replace hime.
The station has confirmed to the Leinster Express that it has now advertised "internally" for a new RTÉ Midlands Correspondent.
RTÉ confirmed earlier in 2022 that it intended advertise to fill the vacancy left by Longford man at some point this year.
The position has been vacant since Mr Mullooly announced he is to leave the broadcaster in June 2021 after nearly three decades covering news mainly in Laois, Offaly, Longford and Westmeath.
The absence of a dedicated journalist in the region meant the station had to draft in Sinead Hussey, its northeast correspondent, to report from Tullamore on the death of Ashling Murphy.
