RTÉ Sport announces biggest and best Paralympics coverage yet


RTÉ Sport today (Thursday 19 August, 2021) announced details of its biggest and most comprehensive Paralympic Games coverage to date across TV, radio and online.

Off the back of a hugely successful Tokyo 2020, RTÉ Sport will again bring Irish audiences all the action, reaction and analysis beginning on Tuesday 24 August across RTÉ.

Daráine Mulvihill will host live action from Tokyo every morning and Evanne Ní Chuilinn takes over in the presenter’s chair for nightly highlights, as RTÉ Sport more than doubles its coverage from 2016 in Rio.


Daráine and Evanne will be joined by a rotating cast of top panellists, including sports journalist Joanne O’Riordan; Paralympians Mark Rohan, Catherine Walsh, John Fulham, Darragh McDonald, Orla Barry, James Scully and Paul Keogan; Ireland’s first Blade Runner, Alex Lee; as well as Olympians Natalya Coyle and David Gillick.
Eamonn Horan, Siobhan Madigan and Darren Freehill will report from Tokyo for RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player as well as providing updates on RTÉ Radio 1 including Morning Ireland, Today with Claire Byrne; and the News At One.


RTÉ 2FM’s Game On will wrap up the day’s news, reports and action from Tokyo while at the weekend on Radio 1, Saturday Sport and Sunday Sport will have more coverage and analysis.
RTÉ Sport online and the RTÉ News app will have all the up-to-the-minute news from the Games with reaction from Irish athletes as it happens every day.
