Cormac Ó hEadhra takes on Late Debate

Cormac Ó hEadhra, drivetime host on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, has been confirmed as the new presenter of The Late Debate on RTÉ Radio 1.

The programme airs Tuesday to Thursday at 10pm and is an hour-long news analysis, politics and current affairs programme.

Cormac said: “I’m very much looking forward to this programme – chairing insightful debates about some of the most pressing issues facing our society as well as tracking the latest developments of current affairs.”

He currently presents Cormac @ 5 on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta – a weekday drivetime current affairs magazine programme. He’s been working for RTÉ since completing his studies – he has a degree in Finance, Computing and Enterprise and also qualified as a barrister in 2007.

    It would be good if Mr O Hardra (who otherwise does a great job) pronounced certain words correctly in English. As a native Irish speaker he speaks a sort of Hiberno-English that jars on the ear sometimes. If he would say ‘enny’ instead of ‘annie’ it would help. The same goes for ‘ennybody’ instead of ‘anniebody’. Do you know what I mean?
