Anna Daly reveals the real reason she left Ireland AM

Anna Daly has insisted it was very much her decision to leave Ireland AM last month.

The TV presenter announced she was leaving the programme in August, after landing a new job with The Communications Clinic.

Anna confirmed the news amid some huge changes at Virgin Media Television, as Matt Cooper, Aidan Power and Laura Woods have also departed the station in recent weeks.

During a new interview with the Irish Daily Mail, the 44-year-old said she left Ireland AM on her own terms.

“I was ready to move on myself,” she said. “I have too many opportunities that I don’t want to keep saying no to.”

“It was very much my decision. I think I was ready to manage my own diary and not rule things out because I wouldn’t be allowed to do them.”

“I was restricted in Virgin, I couldn’t do everything I wanted to do because you are very much part of Virgin.”

Not long after she left Virgin Media, Anna appeared on rival station RTÉ when she was booked as a panellist on the Today Show.

The mother-of-three confessed: “It was weird being in RTÉ — I felt like I was having an affair or something because TV3/Virgin is where I have been for all of my broadcasting life.”

Anna admitted it was a “novelty” to be in the RTÉ studios, and said: “Yeah, hopefully I will be able to do a lot more with them.”
