Ciara has worked in TV and Radio for over a decade, starting as a researcher in TV3’s Factual Entertainment Department.
She then took on the role of news and current affairs producer on Newstalk’s Breakfast show, before joining TV3’s Midweek in 2010.
Ireland AM is currently Ireland’s number one breakfast show.
The Donegal native got the ball rolling with a pretty wild initiation – trying out the extreme sport Zorbing alongside Alan Hughes.
Speaking about her new role, Ciara said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Ireland AM team and becoming a part of such a long-standing, successful and diverse show.
“It’s exciting to get the opportunity to work across such a wide variety of issues and topics.
“I’m also very passionate about representing local views so I’ve already been hard at work, travelling around the country to secure the best stories for Ireland AM viewers.”
