Sofa so good, Sinead O’car­roll can’t wait to get started fill­ing in for Ire­land AM host Ciara

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY SYLVIA POW­NALL

Clare Mckenna was thought to be the front run­ner for the slot hav­ing reg­u­larly filled in for Ciara and her co-stars Mark Cag­ney and Alan Hughes.

But we can ex­clu­sively re­veal Sinead will be first to tem­po­rar­ily fill the va­cancy on the sofa.

Sinead told the Ir­ish Sun­day Mir­ror: “I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to start­ing my morn­ings in the Ire­land AM stu­dio.

“It’s al­ways a fun, bright, en­er­gis­ing place. I get to do the job I love – help­ing peo­ple to tell their sto­ries. I also get to be a com­pan­ion to peo­ple as they start their own days.” Sinead is no stranger to Vir­gin Me­dia hav­ing pre­vi­ously stepped in for Ivan Yates along­side Matt Cooper on The Tonight Show. Ciara, who an­nounced her preg­nancy live on air last June, re­placed Sinead Des­mond on Ire­land AM when she left sud­denly af­ter 11 years in 2017. Leav­ing her role a week-and-a-half early, her de­par­ture has left a pre­sent­ing po­si­tion open which will be filled by sev­eral faces over the next few months. Ire­land AM airs on Vir­gin Me­dia One from Mon­day to Fri­day at 7am. [email protected]­mir­ Ciara O’do­herty Sinead O’car­roll with Mark Cag ney
