About Me:

I’ve had an interest in radio since I was about 10 years of age and that interest remains strong to this day. I’m involved with an Irish Music Show on 103.2 Dublin City FM, where I also present a weekly Travel show during the summers. I organise small concerts locally in Dublin, and considering my love of Shakin Stevens I’m thinking that maybe it’s time for a Christmas Shaky spectacular!

I took part in the Christmas FM training course to get to know different aspects of a station like such as this, and through the enthusiasm of the course director, Adrian, I fell head over heels again with the idea of the station.  I get great pleasure in bringing some Christmas magic to radios, to our app, and any other means by which people listen to Christmas FM, and enjoys interacting with listeners.

Your role at Christmas FM:


Why Christmas FM:

It’s a fantastic feeling to be around like minded people at Christmas FM, all with the passion for great radio, for Christmas and also for the opportunity to help others through the chosen Charity partner. It’s a happy place to be, in and out of studio, and I’m learning new things all of the time.

My Favourite Christmas Song:

Too many! Shakys ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ is up there… Last Christmas is another favourite! But I do have a soft spot for Barry Manilow’s ‘Christmas Is Just Around The Corner’.

My Favourite Christmas Food:

I make a great Trifle..never any leftovers!

My Favourite Christmas Movie:

I like Elf and Miracle on 34th Street

My Favourite Christmas Tradition:

Family get togethers and meet ups, singing a few songs

Where I’m From:

I live close to Booterstown, Dublin, where I promote small concerts and new music. My other radio interests apart from Christmas FM are with 103.2 Dublin City FM, where I have been involved with an Irish music show for over a decade and currently I am appearing on the online/App station that is Diamond Radio 192. All good fun, and great to be involved and invited into peoples lives everyday through this great medium of radio.
