Karen Koster has revealed that she will be taking an extended break from Ireland AM.

The 39-year-old will be stepping away from the popular morning show in order to spend more time with her family.

Taking to Instagram story, Karen shared the news with her followers as she headed in for work.

“Last time I’ll be walking in here for a while. Taking annual leave followed by a chunk of parental leave,” she wrote on the post.


The mother-of-three then posted an image of herself and co-host Ciara Doherty on the social media platform.

“Don’t know which I’ll miss more, Ciara or her new fringe,” she jokingly penned.

The Irish presenter has three children with her husband John McGuire – 5-year-old Finn, 4-year-old JJ, and Eve, who is 1.

The news comes after Karen recently opened up about why she almost quit her role on Ireland AM.

She joined the morning show when she was filling in for Ciara while she was on maternity leave.

On the latest episode of Goss Chats, Ali Ryan chats to Ronan Keating about his stat-studded upcoming music special, and working with Robbie Williams on a special new song dedicated to Stephen Gately.

#GossChats is sponsored by top aesthetic clinic Haus of JeJuve, which is now back open for bookings.
