RTE reacts to boycott by Mickey Harte

RTE has written to Tyrone Gaelic football manager Mickey Harte after he sent a letter to the broadcaster criticising its treatment of one of its leading Gaelic games correspondents.

A number of high-profile managers are refusing to conduct interviews with RTE because they feel Brian Carthy has not been treated well in the wake of Micheal O Muircheartaigh's retirement as GAA anchor.

Harte declined to conduct a post-match interview with RTE on Sunday evening in protest at what he feels is unfair treatment of Carthy, who has been largely overlooked for the main match commentaries since the beginning of the championship season.

"I'll discuss it with the other managers and we'll take a view on it," Harte said of the RTE letter.
