Darren joined RTÉ from TV3's sports department. Although this will kill Tony O'Donoghue, Darren is without doubt, the best footballer in RTÉ Sport.

'Daz' is comfortable commentating on Gaelic games and soccer, and says that meeting Des Cahill has been the highlight of his time in RTÉ so far, only just surpassing the day he met Aidan Cooney in TV3.

He follows Manchester United and was in Moscow when they won the Champions League. If his good form continues he can expect a call-up from Sir Alex.
