Doireann Garrihy announced last week that she would be leaving her radio show on 2FM at the end of the month.

The news came as a shock to listeners who spend the mornings with Doireann, Donncha O’Callaghan and Carl Mullan.

The Dancing with the Stars presenter took to social media over the weekend to share how grateful she is to have so many supporters in her corner.

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you also for all the messages over the past few days. It’s so funny, you can just be so stumped by support sometimes,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I know that there are such lovely supporters out there but until you announce something like this, a big change or a new venture, only then do you see just how many people are behind you and support you and it has just been phenomenal over the past few days.”

She concluded by saying: “Thank you so much. It is such a lovely feeling to know that people have your back and are like, ‘go for it’.”

We can’t wait to see what Doireann does next.

She shared that she would be stepping away from the mic with a statement that read: “After 5 years of #2FMBREAKFAST it’s time for ventures new.

“Donncha and Carl, I have found brothers for life in you both. What an absolute blast of craic, ridiculous immaturity and lifelong bond building. Anyone would be blessed to work with one gentleman every day, I have been beyond blessed to work with two. To the loyal 2FM listeners, through thick and thin you’ve been there. Your support has meant everything.

“There wasn’t a day I didn’t hop out of the bed at 5am. Thank you for welcoming me with open ears back in 2019 and every day since. Producer Grace, you’re a boss, a queen, a friend for life. Willem, it’s been an absolute pleasure. Thank you to Dan Healy for meeting me in 2019 and taking a chance on me. I’m so glad you did.

“Now, it’s time for my podcasts Doireann and Friends and The Laughs Of Your Life, to travel, to give more to the people who have been on this journey with me since the viral impressions video of 2016 and to pursue the projects I’ve been dreaming about I’ll be on air until Friday 31st of May but after that, as we would say to our lovely callers on the show, good luck and thanks x.”
