Crimecall is a television programme broadcast once monthly on Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ). Independently produced in Dublin by Coco Television, it is presented by Gráinne Seoige and Philip Boucher Hayes.

The second RTÉ adaption of Aktenzeichen XY … ungelöst (the previous adaption being called Crimeline), this was even more closely modelled on Crimewatch UK and was presented by David Harvey and Anne Doyle and produced by Harvey's production company. Before Crimeline, RTÉ had itself produced Garda Patrol, a short weekly programme from 1967-1992 and usually presented by a serving member of An Garda Siochana.

The format matches that of its British derivative Crimewatch and reconstructs unsolved crimes in Ireland in an attempt to jog the memories of viewers, who can phone if any details are recalled.
