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.

Colm Ó Mongáin and Richard Crowley are the main presenters. The programme was edited and presented for many years by Gerald Barry. Other presenters in the past include, 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 a round up of all the week's news stories. It 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, with people like the Taoiseach or Tánaiste.

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