Orla Walsh from Shannon, Co Clare is the newest addition to the News2Day team. A graduate of Journalism and New Media at The University of Limerick, she specialised in TV Journalism and received an award for Best Television Documentary for her Final Year Project. Before News2Day Orla was a presenter on Spin South West radio station, a singer at Bunratty Castle and a piano teacher – bit of a multi-tasker! She has a great love of music and she regularly takes to the stage in different musical theatre productions. Orla would say her greatest achievement so far was representing her county and ultimately winning the The Maiden of the Mournes competition in 2011. Follow news2day on Twitter: @new2dayRTE.
