RTE Radio 1 listeners may have been a little perplexed today when the station mysteriously disappeared from the airwaves.

Some listeners of The Ronan Collins Show were greeted by silence for up to half an hour around noon.

RTE said technical issues affected the transmission from Three Rock Mountain.

Those listening via the RTE app and online were unaffected by the issue which was resolved before the News at One was broadcast.

"Only people listening through Three Rock were affected," said an RTE spokesperson, "And only Dublin listeners."

The Ronan Collins Show broadcasts from 12 to 1pm on weekdays.
