    RTE (Raidio Teilifis Eireann) is the local, and provides a pretty excellent coverage of European affairs and how it relates to me, BBC is brilliant for international news in general, and if I'm looking for an American view CNN or MSNBC usually do the trick.

    Al-Jazeera is pretty good, and provides a perspective much less commonly seen in Western Media.

    My mam and dad used to love Radio Luxembourg, haven't listened to it in years though.

    Don't really watch TV. For news I see what Yahoo! is trending, I see some headlines from AP, and see what people post here. Manage to stay fairly updated that way
