Speaking to Doireann Garrihy on her podcast, Doireann and Friends she said: “Everything has flipped around for the better. I left Today FM in November and I can’t believe it was that long ago. So much seems to have changed and fallen into place in the right way.”

She went on to say: “I would’ve been in Galway a lot, every second weekend if not more. I was going down to Galway and coming back up all of the time.

“I thought everyone did that. Then I realised my sister only comes down once every six or seven weeks, my friends came down maybe only once a month.”

While, of course, it was a tough decision. She knew that it was the right one.

“Leaving Today FM was absolutely the right decision, I didn’t make it lightly. It was a very big decision and I thought about it for a long time but not once have I looked back and thought, ‘Oh sugar, have I done the right thing?’. I absolutely did.

“It was definitely the right choice. I miss everything about it, but I feel much more peaceful I would say.”

Louise Cantillon stepped into the slot in January.

Of course, Doireann will also be leaving her own radio slot with 2FM later this month.
