Radio Telifis Eireann is changing its name to Raidio Telifis Eireann.

RTE has confirmed it is to change its official title, because it has been using a grammatically incorrect one for 43 years. And the station will now have to ‘rebrand' its documentation to reflect the change.

The name change is in the new Broadcasting Bill, and it is understood to have been pushed through by director general Cathal Goan, who is a gaeilgeoir.
