Paul Reynolds is an Irish journalist. He is currently the RTÉ Crime Correspondent, with some excellent contacts in An Garda Síochána.[1]

Reynolds has been on the main RTÉ News and Current Affairs programmes, in both television and radio, almost daily for over a decade. He joined RTÉ in 1991 at the same time as Mark Little, Rachael English and Sean Whelan.[2]

In June 2009, he won the Political and Current Affairs Journalist of The Year from Irish National Media Awards.[3] In June 2011 he was subject to criticism from Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence Alan Shatter, who stated, "Reynolds has great difficulty in accurately reporting" and he "consistently engages in tabloid sensationalism".[4] RTÉ responded to this claim by saying that his work and his "record stands for itself".[5]
