The IFTAs were always a turn off

It comes as no surprise to find out that RTE have ditched the IFTAs from next year's TV schedule, following the shambles that was last year's event.

One felt sorry for presenters Laura Whitmore and Simon Delaney, who had to contend with appalling sound, drunken guests and shambolic organisation.

The fact that it will not be televised surely puts the whole event in doubt, the blame for which lies at the door of the Irish Film and Television Academy. And guess what? When contacted for a comment yesterday, the Academy claimed not to know RTE had pulled out.

Even at the very end, the people behind the IFTAs are clueless.
