"The last 18 months on RTÉ 2fm’s DriveBy have been amazing. Radio always throws up new and exciting challenges and I’m about to take the next challenge" he continued.

Eoghan, well-known for his TV role presenting The Voice Of Ireland is chuffed at the opportunity.

“To be given a national platform with Ireland’s most iconic station is a genuine honour.
