Doireann Garrihy’s first 2FM Breakfast show with new co-hosts Carl Mullan and Donncha O’Callaghan was a hit with listeners this morning.

Doireann previously hosted the 6am radio slot with Eoghan McDermott, who left the station earlier this year.

Today was the new trio’s first morning on the airwaves and the hosts proved to be a great team, leaving fans in stitches as Carl and rugby player Donncha revealed that they had taken a pre-show shower together.

“The team that shower together win together, that's what I'm going with,” Donncha explained.

A delighted Doireann replied: “That's full-on team vibes lads!”

But Carl had one slight issue about their new ritual, much to the amusement of his co-hosts: “There's nothing like being in a dressing room with a former Irish Rugby International to make yourself feel, ‘God, I cannot wait for the gyms to open this day next week.’”

Doireann asked her new colleagues if the joint showering would be a regular thing, to which Ireland’s Fittest Family coach Donncha replied: “I’d like it to be a regular thing, I really enjoyed it!”

“I feel so left out but that does not mean I ever want to join,” Doireann laughed.

The new team’s first show proved to be a hit with fans with one commenting on 2FM’s Instagram post saying: “Crying laughing! Brilliant first show lads.”

The praise continued over on Twitter, where one listener wrote: “Well that three hours whizzed by! Congrats on the new show lads. It’s a hit! Same time, same place tomorrow? God dammit, ye’ll make me a morning person yet!!”

Another penned: “If you could only bottle this energy and a laugh a minute. Well done all, can’t wait for tomorrow.”

2FM Breakfast with Doireann, Donncha, and Carl will air 6am–9am weekdays on RTÉ 2FM.
