The summer of 2018 saw Eoghan head to the sunshine where he narrated the incredibly successful LOVE ISLAND AUSTRALIA with ITV Studios on Channel Nine, so expect that to be part of his annual working diary...

Eoghan has hosted several one-off music specials for RTE also, including “Up Close with Ed Sheeran” - an in-depth interview with the musical juggernaut. He has done similar with Sam Smith and Ireland’s new U2, Kodaline. U2 themselves featured Eoghan’s video review of their Innocence and Experience tour on their u2.com homepage.

In 2017 Eoghan returned to his politics degree and hosted ‘Generation What’ for RTE2 television. It was the biggest ever survey of Irish Millennial’s attitudes towards sex, drugs, politics, religion, immigration, social cohesion and more.

Eoghan has been an ambassador for mental health organisation Pieta House for 5 years,and gives regular talks at high profile events aimed at youth wellbeing.
