Eamon Dunphy Is Leaving RTE
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Some big news in RTE sports broadcasting today: Eamon Dunphy has decided to leave RTE Sport. Confirming the news via his podcast's Twitter account, Dunphy said that the decision was his, electing not to renew his contract with RTE in spite of being offered a (small) raise. Dunphy revealed that he informed RTE of his decision to leave before the World Cup.

Dunphy said his focus will now shift to his podcast, The Stand.

In a statement, RTE Head of Sport Declan McBennett thanked Dunphy for his contribution across 40 years.

We would like to thank Eamon for the immense contribution he has made to our sporting coverage across four decades. He was there for every key moment throughout that time as we were gripped by the exploits of our international side in particular. His insight and analysis informed, enthralled and entertained a nation. Eamon has now decided to pursue other avenues and we wish him every success in those ventures.
