Clare McKenna

DJ and TV Presenter


Clare most recently worked as a presenter on Ireland AM for a six month stint but has been on the airwaves at Spin 103.8, co hosting their daily talk show, The Spin, for the last 6 years. She has also worked as a reporter on TV3′s Midweek and presented The Liffey Laugh for RTE in 2006. Her voice can be heard on many TV & radio adverts and she is the in house voice of TV3 promo ads.

After completing a PLC course in Theatre Studies, Clare spent the next few years working 9-5 while getting a ‘fall back’ degree in Marketing at night. She then took on a post grad in Journalism and used this as her starting point to get into radio and TV, a career she had always hankered after. Work experience in 98fm news is where she began, she hasn’t looked back and luckily hasn’t had to use the marketing degree just yet!

She finished on Ireland AM just before having her second baby, a little girl, Lois, little sister to 2 and a half year old Flynn.

Because I am a Girl I ask …to be treated the same as the boys

Because I am a Girl I believe …in true love

Because I am a Girl I hope …to live life without regret

Because I am a Girl I wonder ..why can’t all just get along

Because I am a Girl I dream …of a better world for those less fortunate

Because I am a Girl I remember …an amazing childhood

Because I am a Girl I like …talking about my feelings!

Because I am a Girl I dislike …negative thoughts

Because I am a Girl I feel …lucky

Because I am a Girl I celebrate…life
