MORNING IRELAND PRESENTER Aine Lawlor will be back on the air for the second time this week when she appears on Saturday Night with Miriam tonight.
Last October the broadcaster announced that she would be taking time off from the morning current affairs show to undergo medical treatment for breast cancer.
In March her colleague Cathal Mac Coille said that Lawlor hoped to return to her regular slot by the end of the year, but she’s returned much sooner than that, surprising listeners by getting back to work yesterday.
She had been scheduled to return on Monday, but decided to come back a day early without causing any fuss.
Her name trended on Twitter for a time yesterday as well wishers welcomed her back to Morning Ireland, including colleague Des Cahill:
Lawlor will discuss her battle with breast cancer with Miriam O’Callaghan. She made a brief return to RTÉ last month to present some of the coverage of the Bloom event in the Phoenix Park.
