France Vs Galway

RTE, for some reason, used the French shortening of Wales name at the weekend:


Meant I thought France were playing Galway at the weekend…

For at least a few minutes.

  1. I’m not sure why, but the TV stations seem to generally use the French TV feed on matches in Paris, without changing the graphics at all. perhaps they think it’s useful for thoe doing their Leaving cert french orals in a few weeks.

    “Er…oui, Irlande gagnez le match, mais Angleterre marquez un essaie dans le dying moments of le match, et j’ai une cardiaque arrest, bien sur.”

  2. I would have thought it was a French graphic alright Andrew but RTE had gone to the trouble of branding it with one fo their own logos.

    Tres bizarre.

  3. The French TV feed tends to be without a logo, so that RTE can slot in their own logo just to the left of the score. You will note in the above picture that it took RTE at least 1 minute and 19 seconds to find the right button to add the logo in…. (FWIW the matches provided by the BBC are exactly the same)
