Damien Allen

I first became involved in radio at the age of 15 by becoming a presenter on the local radio station.  Since then I have done voice over work, sports presenting and worked as a presenter on a number of stations across Ireland including LMFM, Choice FM and 949 The Rock. Each December since 2010 I have been with Christmas FM helping to bring the magic of Christmas to the airwaves.
Your role at Christmas FM
Why Christmas FM
I have been part of the Christmas FM family since 2010 and it’s always a privilege to be involved with such a great team helping raise funds for lots of wonderful charities and playing some great tunes along the way.
My Favourite Christmas Song
It’s hard to beat the crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
My Favourite Christmas Food
Christmas Pudding (it must be the brandy!)
My Favourite Christmas Movie
Home Alone is still brilliant and for an absolute classic it has got to be White Christmas
My Favourite Christmas Tradition
Putting up the tree and switching on the Christmas lights.

Where i'm from
I am from Dublin and live in Lucan which gives me the benefit of being reasonably close to the city while a short drive from the countryside! St Catherine’s Park and Castletown are amazing local amenities and it’s always great to spend time there when possible.
