Description   Newsreader Keelin Shanley on the set of 'Six One News', at the unveiling of a refurbishment and technical upgrade of RTÉ Television's Studio 3 on 28 January 2019. There is a Brexit graphic on the screen behind her. The first programme broadcast live from the new Studio 3 was the RTÉ 'Six One News' on 28 January 2019.

The upgraded studio featured a new video wall, 24 metres long and 3 metres high, spanning three sides of the studio. The refurbishment also saw the introduction of new automated HD cameras, a new set design, additional presentation areas and changed opening graphics for the main news bulletins.

The work on Studio 3 cost €1.4 million and was financed as a major capital investment project by RTÉ directly from the proceeds of RTÉ's land sale. The last major renovation in 2009 cost of €1.3 million and during its life span was used to broadcast over 15,000 programmes.
