PRESENTERS including Ryan Tubridy have been ordered to scurry from the RTE canteen amid fears of a rat infestation.
Bosses warned of the rat-ical closure after rattling out an email to staff.
When asked about the move, RTE confirmed the broadcaster was determined to rat out the pesky critters.
A spokesperson told the Irish Sun: “RTE has a number of controls in place to monitor rodent activity on our sites, which can occur from time to time, particularly due to building or other works on site or in the area.
“Where any rodent activity is detected, as happened recently, experts are brought on site to assess such activity and take the appropriate action, including precautionary measures.
“The main canteen is currently closed for essential maintenance.”
RTE presenters and staff will have to chew on their grub elsewhere on the campus.
But they shouldn’t be too cheesed off as chiefs flagged-up other catering options.
In an email to staff seen by the Irish Sun, RTE wrote: “I wanted to advise you of some arrangements we have out in place while the Main Restaurant on our Donnybrook Campus is closed for essential maintenance
