Dara Quilty to replace Dermot and Dave

Spin 1038 presenter Dara Quilty is moving to 98FM to take over Dermot and Dave’s afternoon show.

He’ll start in August on The Big Ride Home as Dermot and Dave join sister Communicorp station Today FM.

Dara said: “I’m delighted to make the move to 98FM and develop as a solo presenter. The station actually gave me my first gig holding a balloon on Grafton Street – there were 300 of us holding them, but I’m the only one who still works in the business today! Having been part of a duo for the past few years on Spin 103.8 I’m really looking forward to the challenge of ridin’ solo on 98FM!

98fm’s Station Manager Michael Brett added: “Dara is an exciting addition to the 98FM family. “His youth and energy will bring a really fresh approach to the drivetime slot and we look forward to welcoming him into the fold and adding him to our already really strong line up.”

As well as presenting for radio, Dara was the first host of RTE’s Two Tube but made the switch to radio in 2007.
