Kerry is set to feature on Top Gear this Sunday night, however the episode will not air on RTE until the Autumn.
Hosts Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc visited Kerry last month with a large BBC crew, filming in Kenmare, Killarney and the Dingle Peninsula.
The footage will air on BBC One this Sunday night at 8pm – but not on RTE.
A spokesperson confirmed to Radio Kerry RTE bought the rights for the new Top Gear series but were only permitted to simulcast the first two episodes.
They will broadcast the remaining episodes on RTE2 in the autumn, after the series concludes on the BBC.
