Donald "Donal" MacIntyre
- This page is about the television journalist. For others of similar name see Donald MacIntyre
(born 25 January 1966 in Dublin), is an Irish investigative journalist, specialising in hard hitting investigations, undercover operations and television exposés. He has won praise for his courage and campaigning zeal, particularly his consistent work in the area of care homes for the elderly and the learning disabled. He has won awards in the UK, France, Spain and Ireland for his work, but the machismo of his style has also brought some detractors, from traditional journalists and among some people whose activities he had revealed.
The risks of repeatedly going undercover have meant that MacIntyre has increasingly turned to presenting on films where his colleagues have undertaken the undercover work. He has also branched out into more traditional presenting roles, on weather phenomena and wildlife documentaries on BBC TV and Five. In 2007 he directed the Sundance Film Festival premiered A Very British Gangster.
From April 2010, MacIntyre began co-presenting ITV's London Tonight. In August 2010, The Guardian reported he was leaving the show after less than six months in the post.
