MEP demands EU action on media ownership in Ireland – Boylan

The Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan is
demanding that the EU Commission investigates the high concentration of media
ownership in Ireland. An EU-funded report recently published by the Florence-based
Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom, found that Ireland was exposed to
a ‘high risk’ when it comes to concentration of media ownership. The report referred to the fact that the businessman
Denis O’Brien
‘enjoys a dominant position within the
print and the commercial radio sector’. However, the report also stated that this
dominance is countered by the dominant position of RTE, in both the television
and radio markets. But Lynn Boylan is warning that no one individual should
control so much of the media.
