Aine Lawlor is from Dublin and started working for RTÉ in 1984 as a radio announcer, using all her speech and drama experience on air.
A full-time job as a trainee journalist followed, eventually leading to her becoming a presenter on Morning Ireland, which she joined in 1995.
Along the way, Aine has worked on The Pat Kenny Show, Today at 5, RTÉ 2FM News and a variety of television programmes, including The Nature of Things, Tuesday File and Today Tonight.

What would Aine Lawlor be doing if she weren't on Morning Ireland? The answer is she'd be in her garden, as plants are her second love after radio.
