RTE Sport Head Ryle Nugent Delivers Verdict On Joe Brolly-Marty Morrissey Incident

RTE Sport Head Ryle Nugent Delivers Verdict On Joe Brolly-Marty Morrissey Incident

The bold boy of RTE's coverage has got his scolding off the Head of Sport Ryle Nugent. Fortunately for some (those of us who admire Joe's riotously entertaining TV persona and his refusal to indulge in stock cliches) and unfortunately for others (those who don't) Brolly is being left where he is.

Brolly has been informed that remarks of a similar nature in a future broadcast will not be tolerated. Hopefully, his exuberant wings wont be clipped too much.

Here is the full statement issued by the boss.

I have spoken with Joe Brolly about the comments he made in relation to RTE Sport’s GAA Correspondent and commentator Marty Morrissey on last weekend’s Sunday Game Live broadcast. Joe is acutely aware that his ill-conceived attempt at humour was both inappropriate and extremely hurtful and had no place in any broadcast. Further, Joe is fully cognisant of the fact that similar comments in any future broadcast cannot and will not be tolerated.

Joe Brolly has spoken at length with and offered a heartfelt apology to Marty Morrissey which was graciously accepted.

All parties now consider this matter closed.
