Morning Ireland

Monday - Friday, 07.00 - 09.00

Petula Martyn

After completing an MA in Journalism at DCU in 2004, Petula joined the news team at Limerick's Live 95FM where she cut her teeth in journalism in her native city. Three years later, she joined the Limerick Leader where she reported on stories of local and national interest.

In 2011, Petula joined RTÉ and has worked at the Oireachtas, TV and news online. Morning Ireland was always on the radio in the Martyn household when Petula was growing up, so it's where she feels most at home.

Petula loves a trip to Croke Park to support Limerick and Galway - especially when they beat Tipperary and Kilkenny. She has lots of medals for running (the ones they give everyone at the finish line). She recently completed her first triathlon.
