Celtic Media Festival
Boisterous and bold or quiet and careful, various approaches yes, and all necessary tools in the radio presenter’s arsenal. Knowing when to utilize each is the tricky part. These are, however, skills observed and adopted by Dónall Mac Ruairí, not so much to get the best of himself but to get the most from his guest for the ever-present listener. Whether jiving the dance floor mic in hand, behind the studio mic with Daniel O’Donnell, tactfully and carefully discussing the tragic loss of friends and family during the Troubles or kipping overnight on a long haul truck trip, Dónall is at home and comfortable in all, and his personality shines through.
