What if you launched a TV channel and nobody noticed?
We're well used to seeing highly vaunted new media projects collapsing and gently disappearing into that good night with barely an eyebrow raised, but UTV Ireland is surely the first TV station to have arrived with a whimper rather than a bang. God knows how little attention it will receive if it ever goes bust.
A small bit in the back page of the Indo? A where-are-they-now on the 'stars' of the station in a few years' time when some enterprising features editor decides to see what happened to those unfortunate enough to work in a place that nobody cares about?
