Unlike many other national broadcasters, RT One was late to begin broadcasting in the mornings, and 24-hour transmission only began in the early 1990s. - link icon read more about RTE One (NI) on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Hello could you please tell me what equipment I need to be able to watch RTE and other Irish broadcasts in North Wales?

It rather depends on where in North Wales you are located.

You need to have a direct line-of-sight, free of hills and mountains, to one of the RTE transmitter in the Republic of Ireland and at sufficient height above sea level to see beyond the normal sea-level horizon. You will also need a high gain aerial mounted as high as is reasonable and carefully aimed at the nearest RTE transmitter having an uninterrupted view from your location. You may need an aerial amplifier as well if the signal strengths are low, the ideal is between 50% and 85% for SD and between 60% and 85% for HD. Lower strengths will be unreliable and higher strength will cause pixillation or break-up of pictures and sound - or even total loss!

Note also that signals may vary with the tides, as the surface of the Irish Sea rises and falls the effect on the signal tranmission path causes a variation in the attenutation caused by the sea.

A full post code will help to judge whether that is feasible or not.
