Just listening to RTE 6.01 News read by Siun Ni Gearailt. She just cannot pronounce English to a standard acceptable to a national news service.
First off: she "walcomes" us to "Six One Nooz", quickly followed by a reference to a "referendum compaign".
Among the other legion mispronunciations: "taken hastage"; "Carlew" (the town in Co Carlow, I suppose); "weekand".
It really is long past time RTE dealt with this butchery of pronunciation, by introducing guidelines on what presenters may not say. Or giving them elocution lessons. What might be acceptable on "Span" FM is quite simply a needless pandering to speech fashion on flagship public service programmes.
