Love Island winner Greg O’Shea has landed yet another job in RTÉ.

The 24-year-old will step in to replace Eoghan McDermott on RTÉ2fm’s breakfast show later this month.

Just weeks after his 2fm role was announced, Greg has secured another job in Montrose by joining RTÉ’s Rugby World Cup coverage team.

The Limerick rugby 7s player is set to host a regular segment on the RTÉ Player called ‘The Opposition in 60 Seconds’.

Greg’s new RTÉ role is sure to ruffle some feathers, as the sports star previously faced backlash over the announcement of his 2fm gig.

Many took to social media to critique the choice of Greg for the role.

Frances Watkins tweeted: “The fact that Greg O’Shea has just got himself a presenting job on 2fm literally sums up what the media industry is like.”

“Never mind people with degrees and talent, just get the hot guy who teenage girls will listen to.”

Journalism student Conor Brummell wrote: “Can’t believe i’m two years into a journalism degree and I’m going to have to fight tooth and nail against 100s of other graduates in two years time for any sort of a job prospect like this.”

“Yet some reality tv star gets offered a prime spot on our national radio station? A joke.”

He is set to fill in for Eoghan on the 2FM Breakfast Show alongside Doireann Garrihy from September 23 until November 20.
