Brendan Fitzpatrick

Brendan Fitzpatrick is from Clonmel in Co Tipperary and started his broadcasting career in Tipp Fm where he worked in the newsroom and hosted weekend sports programmes. He then moved to Limerick to work in RTÉ's new classical music station Lyric FM where he was part of the news team (despite not knowing his arias from his elbow!)

From there, it was on to the RTÉ newsroom in Dublin in 2002 where, after a brief stint on the radio sub-editor's desk, he moved to the Morning Ireland programme as a reporter. He was appointed editor on Morning Ireland in 2008, after which he was part of the coverage of the US elections.

He was editor of RTÉ's News At One programme for twelve months before returning to Morning Ireland. Brendan is a keen sports fan, a supporter of Tipperary hurling (from the ditch) and Man Utd (from the couch)
