2FM Breakfast with Doireann, Donncha and Carl airs 6am–9am weekdays on RTÉ 2FM. The brand-new national breakfast show will debut on Monday, 31st May.
RTÉ today announced a brand-new, national breakfast show, starting Monday, May 31st on RTÉ 2FM. Doireann Garrihy will continue to host the new 3-hour show, and will be joined by two new co-hosts, 2FM presenters Donncha O'Callaghan and Carl Mullan.
This programme starts bright and early every morning and is launching just as the country emerges from lockdown with life getting somewhat back to normal. But normal isn’t what we can expect from this show as Doireann will definitely have her hands full with former rugby legend Donncha and funny man Carl joining her each morning. Listeners can be guaranteed lots of laughs, plenty of giveaways as the three co-hosts conspire to get each day off to a bright and sunny start for listeners.
RTÉ announced over a month ago that 2FM was creating a brand-new breakfast show with Doireann at the helm. Her two co-hosts are familiar voices to the station; former Irish international rugby ace, Donncha O’Callaghan presents Game On on RTÉ 2FM and has also appeared as a coach on Ireland’s Fittest Family on RTÉ One. Instagram comedian and RTÉ Player presenter, Carl Mullan already enjoys a great working relationship with Doireann having worked with her on The Doireann Project. Luckily for him, Carl is no stranger to early mornings as he has presented 2FM’s weekend breakfast show alongside Aifric O’Connell.
Head of RTÉ 2FM, Dan Healy said: "This is a very exciting new breakfast show for RTÉ 2FM with two new voices for breakfast radio joining Doireann. From Monday, May 31st, there will be an injection of great fun from Doireann, Donncha and Carl along with great music which will have Ireland in top form every day. A very well done to Tara Stewart and Stephan Byrne who kept us all entertained while Doireann and the team were at the ideas factory!"
Doireann Garrihy said: "I can’t wait to get on air with Donnacha and Carl. It’s a brand-new show with a brand-new sound and feel. We’ve had endless craic while plotting over the past few weeks and I just know that our listeners will love it."
Carl Mullan said: "I’m absolutely buzzing to be part of the brand new 2FM breakfast show with my pals Doireann and Donncha. I joined the station back in 2013, fresh out of college and since then this has always been the dream gig. We’re so excited to bring loads of laughs and all-around good vibes to start everyone’s day."
Donnacha O’Callaghan said: "I’m delighted to be part of 2FM Breakfast. It’s going to be incredible craic teaming up with Doireann & Carl and the fantastic breakfast team. I am a positive early bird by nature and can’t wait to help create some real feel-good radio. Massively grateful to all the team for the opportunity."
Together they are set to bring you a Breakfast bowl of mayhem on 2FM with some brand-new games, sketches and challenges that are set to make 2FM Breakfast a show like no other.
