Chairman of the Committee John O’Mahony TD says: “Oireachtas Committees are playing an ever more active role in the process leading to the appointment of Chairpersons to State Boards. In a similar vein and under existing legislation, this Committee also has a role in the nominating individuals to the boards of RTÉ and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.

“We invite expressions of interest to these important boards with a view to considering them for nomination to the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources. Those putting forward their names should attach a short history of their work experience, detailing which of the criteria for appointment they satisfy, as well as a copy of their CV."
