Doireann Garrihy confirms new 2FM co-hosts as Donncha O’Callaghan and Carl Mullan
"It's a brand-new show with a brand-new sound and feel."
Doireann Garrihy has confirmed Donncha O'Callaghan and Carl Mullan as her new 2FM Breakfast Show co-hosts.
The radio presenter shared the news this morning, confirming that the rugby legend and comedian will be joining her in the three hour morning slot, starting next Monday.
Doireann took a short break from presenting duties following the sudden departure of former co-host Eoghan McDermott. The social media star revealed last week that she would be returning to the station, but had yet to confirm who would be joining her.
According to RTÉ, the new show will include "lots of laughs" and "plenty of giveaways."
"I can't wait to get on air with Donncha and Carl,” said Doireann. "It's a brand-new show with a brand-new sound and feel. We've had endless craic while plotting over the past few weeks and I just know that our listeners will love it."

Carl, who has worked with Doireann on The Doireann Project before, added: "I'm absolutely buzzing to be part of the brand new 2FM breakfast show with my pals Doireann and Donncha. I joined the station back in 2013, fresh out of college and since then this has always been the dream gig.
"We're so excited to bring loads of laughs and all-around good vibes to start everyone's day."
Donncha added: "It’s going to be incredible craic teaming up with Doireann & Carl and the fantastic breakfast team. I am a positive early bird by nature and can’t wait to help create some real feel-good radio.
"Massively grateful to all the team for the opportunity."
Former co-host Eoghan McDermott left the station earlier this year. RTÉ confirmed the news in a statement reading: "RTÉ confirms that Eoghan McDermott will not be returning to RTÉ 2FM. His contract is due to expire shortly.
"RTÉ is developing a new direction for the 2FM Breakfast Show which will be revealed in the coming weeks. Doireann Garrihy will remain with the show."
