Yesterday in Cork, 2FM radio DJ Louise McSharry married her partner Gordon Spierin.

Earlier on this week Louise took to twitter to post the message “what a difference a year makes,” as it marked one year since she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Louise received good news in March when her doctors informed her she was in remission.

The 32-year old took a brief break from radio but has since resumed her position on the air waves every weekday evening.

Leading up the big day the DJ gave us all an intimate look at her wedding preparations. One of which, the most important one we imagine, was watching Magic Mike on repeat the morning of her wedding.

The pair married in an intimate ceremony in the luxurious Ballinacurra House outside Kinsale.

The location is often noted for the privacy which it offers it’s guests. Set in a secluded and very pretty woodland, the beautiful house was one of the destinations sought by none other than Kanye West for his honeymoon with wife Kim Kardashian.

In 2006 the house was also famed after it was chosen by Michael Jackson as the location he chose to stay with his children. At the time he was hoping to stay somewhere quiet and private as a respite from the pressures of fame.

The Dublin native Louise admitted that the night before her wedding she slept in her ‘Yes Equality’ t-shirt, she admitted on twitter that “it only seemed right.”

Throughout the day she received huge numbers of supportive messages to congratulate her on the big day. 2Fm posted photos of the much-loved DJ in her beautiful gown on their twitter page for fans to see.

Congratulations to the happy couple!



Jennifer Maguire has given birth to her first child. 

The RTÉ star welcomed a baby girl last night and the new was announced on the 2FM Twitter account earlier this morning. 

Using a rather disturbing, but hilarious photoshopped image of a baby with Bernard O'Shea's head, the radio station revealed that Jennifer gave birth to a baby girl named Florence Myra Zamparelli. 

We LOVE it. 

Congratulations to Jennifer and her husband Lauterio on the birth of their baby girl – such an exciting time! 


Hazel Behan spoke on The Ryan Tubridy Show on 2FM yesterday where she recounted her rape experience, and now her story is making headlines worldwide.

The brave woman told Ryan how she was raped in Portugal back in 2004 when she was working at a resort as a rep. Telling the presenter how she had always felt a ‘presence’ in her small apartment where she lived alone, she was awoken one night by a man in a black mask calling her name.

What Hazel endured next was very hard for both for her to recall and for Ryan and listeners to hear. She was tied up and raped for four hours: “It feels so surreal, like I’m talking about something from Law and Order Special Victims Unit. I shut off. My thing was to figure him out, I’m going to get out of this, I won’t let him beat me.”

Her rapist was never found, with Hazel saying that the police didn’t take it as seriously as they should: “I think they wanted to protect the holiday industry, they didn’t want it to be known that this happened in a holiday resort.”

Hazel’s story has left a huge imprint on the Irish people, and now beyond that as people took to Twitter to applaud her bravery for bringing her story to the forefront: “I want to do this for other girls, I want to tell people not to give rape victims the pity eyes, it does happen, it’s not something that you just see in the movies, but at the same time people must be sensitive to what other have gone through.”

Nicky Byrne of Westlife is reported to be replacing Colm Hayes in the 11am-1pm slot on RTE’s 2fm. It has been said that Colm will be staying with RTE’s 2fm but moving to a different slot.

The move is another shake-up for company since it was taken over by new controller, Dan Healy who believes Nicky will “appeal to young audiences through instant likeability and humour”.

Ryan Tubridy rang Nicky on his own radio show to congratulate him and Nicky told him about his fears and how he was looking forward to the future: “It’s very daunting for me … I’m really, really looking forward to it. I’m very excited.”

This new change comes shortly after it was announced that Hector’s breakfast show would be taken over by Jennifer Maguire, Bernard O’Shea and Keith Walsh.
