This Week is a news and current affairs programme broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1. It airs Sundays at 13:00 and is presented by various RTÉ News and Current Affairs journalists.[1][2]

Colm Ó Mongáin and Brian Dowling are the main presenters. The reporter is John Burke. The programme was edited and presented for many years by Gerald Barry. Other presenters in the past include, Richard Crowley, Michael Good, Paul Maguire, David McCullagh, Gavin Jennings and Sean O Rourke. In 2015 the programme won two PPI awards for radio journalism.

This Week is similar to RTÉ News at One. An extended news bulletin takes up the first few minutes of the programme. This is then typically followed by a series of interviews, original breaking stories by the programme team, foreign news and news packages.

Lengthened editions are also aired on the occasion of major breaking news stories such as general elections or referendums.
