About Me:

I have enjoyed a long career in radio, a medium I absolutely love. I present “Shakin’ Street” on Dublin City FM, and was previously on Today FM, RTE Radio 1, RTE Gold, 4FM, and Radio Ireland. I am a four-time nominee for a National Radio Award and also presented and produced the motoring programme Drive on RTE television.

Your role at Christmas FM:


Why Christmas FM:

I have always loved everything about Christmas – especially Christmas records. From pop classics to novelty tunes, from soul to rock ‘n’ roll, from crooners to carols, if it’s got sleigh bells on it, I’m in. So being able to bring that musical magic to Christmas FM listeners is a real treat. I also love the way Christmas FM connects people all over the world. That really is the magic of Christmas.

My Favourite Christmas Song:

(There’s No War on Christmas) When Christmas is in Your Heart – The Mockers

My Favourite Christmas Food:


My Favourite Christmas Movie:

A Christmas Story (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”)

My Favourite Christmas Tradition:

My mother’s annual gingerbread house. I really miss it!

Where I’m From:

The Greater North Pole Area. (OK, Boston actually, but close enough!)

Still thinking of the perfect one!
