January 1987 - October 1988

Idents/Clocks [1]

RTÉ launched a new corporate logo in December 1986. The new design was created by Raymond Kyne and Associates, Dublin. The updated corporate logo was introduced to coincide with the twenty-fifth anniversary of the launch of RTÉ's television service on New Year's Eve 1961.

In the early hours of January 01 1987, RTÉ One and RTÉ Two aired their new channel idents, featuring the new RTÉ logo.
