Doireann Garrihy has revealed when she plans to return to her RTE 2FM breakfast show.

At the moment Tara Stewart and Stephen Byrne have taken the helm until Doireann is back with a brand new show. Speaking with them on this morning’s slot she shared that it will be the end of this month when she returns.

“Look I’ve been here working away in the radio ideas factory as we’ve christened it, and it’s all looking quite exciting.”

“I can reveal exclusively on the show this morning that I will be back on air, on the 31st of May, with a brand new Breakfast Show. It’s this day two weeks so not long.”

In March, RTE confirmed that Eoghan McDermott would not be returning to the station, leaving Doireann without a co-host.

The news of his departure was confirmed by the broadcaster in a statement; “RTÉ confirms that Eoghan McDermott will not be returning to RTÉ 2FM. His contract is due to expire shortly.”

There were no specific reasons given for his departure with the statement revealing that; “RTÉ is developing a new direction for the 2FM Breakfast Show which will be revealed in the coming weeks.”

There have been plenty of others tipped to take his place with Aidan Power being a front runner as he has just finished his own popular breakfast show on iRadio.

A number of other Irish stars have also been tipped to join Doireann on the show, including Marty Guilfoyle and Carl Mullan. And now, according to the Irish Mail on Sunday, Brian Dowling is very much in the running to present the breakfast show.

For now, all we know is when Doireann is back on the airwaves, it seems we’ll have to wait to find out who is set to join her!
