The Weather Team

Audrey McGrath

Paul Connolly

A UCC BA graduate of English and Sociology, Audrey started her broadcasting career as on on-air news journalist in Cork's 96FM. She made her first foray into the world of television in 2002, as an RTÉ continuity announcer and has since built an impressive portfolio of voice-over work which includes high-profile documentaries for RTE TWO television.

During the course of her TV presenting career, she has continued to hone her in-front-of camera skills, sharing a specialised coach with the likes of Natasha Kaplinski, Edith Bowman and Ben Shepard in London. Between 2006 and 2008, Audrey worked as a presenter on TV3's "Ireland AM", interviewing the likes of Helen Mirren, Michael Bublé, Bonnie Tyler and Richard Dean Anderson (known to us all as McGuyver!). She also presented weather bulletins here before a return to RTÉ in 2008.

Since then, Audrey has been delivering National, European and World Forcasts for RTÉ ONE and RTÉ TWO television, whilst also lending her dulcet tones to RTÉ TWO as a continuity announcer.

The entertainment world has always had a draw for Audrey. During her early radio days in Cork's 96FM, she married hard news broadcasting with red-carpet reporting at events such as 'The Irish Meteor Awards' and '02 in the Park', where she rubbed shoulders with stars such as Tom Jones and U2. A contributor too to 'The Full Irish' breakfast show on RTÉ 2FM in years gone by, Audrey has continued to dabble in radio broadcasting, most recently as a broadcast news journalist with Dublin's FM104 news in 2009/10.

Having studied psychology as part of her BA degree in UCC, Audrey continues to have a huge interest in the field, and in more recent years she has delved into the world of quantum physics and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). She is a strong believer in Napoleon Hill's words of wisdom;"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve". 2 of her biggest passions in life are singing and latin dancing.
