"I’m thrilled that Keelin and Caitriona will bring their intellect, competitive drive, and focus on storytelling to RTÉ's Six One News.

"In a news environment where we are bombarded by opinions and half-truths all day long, there’s no bigger challenge than to make sense of it all on Six One - and no better new presenting team to do so."

Viewers also expressed their delight at seeing Shanley and Perry co-anchor the news programme.

They took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
