RTE JOURNALISTS HONOURED AT NATIONAL AWARDS

RTE journalists and programme makers figured prominently at the recent ESB National Media Awards for excellence in journalism
Mary Wilson, RTE Legal Affairs Correspondent, received the overall ‘Journalist of the Year’ award. Wilson was presented with this award for her reports on the trial of Catherine Nevin, and was praised for her in-depth coverage and detailed analysis of the legal considerations of the trial on the radio and television. Mary O’Rourke, Minister for Public Enterprise, presented her with a cheque for £2000.
Reporter Annette O’Donnell from RTE News won in the category of ‘TV News and Current Affairs’ for her coverage of the Moriarty Tribunal.
In the area of TV Campaigning and Social Issues, the award was given to Fiona Gough and Keelin Shanley of ‘Prime Time’, for their report on the growing number of teenagers selling sex on the streets of Irish towns. They were commended for ‘highlighting the State’s failure to protect and care for children at risk in a powerful yet unsensational way’.
Sean O Mordha’s reputation as a maker of exceptional documentaries was established by films on Beckett, Joyce, Orhiada and O’Cadhain.
Adrian McCarthy won the ‘Television Sport’ award for the documentary ‘Blowing The Whistle’ made by Wildfire Films for RTE.
