Anna Daly is an award-winning TV presenter who woke up the nation on Ireland’s flagship TV breakfast show, ‘Ireland AM‘ for 12 years.
In recent months Anna has shifted from daytime to primetime with her groundbreaking new tv shows on Ireland’s National broadcaster, RTE 1. ‘Future Island‘, a LIVE nightly programme shown across a week, which Anna anchored, was dubbed ‘Tomorrow’s world for today’ and ‘ Hospital Live‘ an ambitious live tv event fronted and co-anchored by Anna from a purpose built set in the heart of Ireland’s busiest general hospital St James’. Both series were produced by renowned production company, Indiepics.
Anna honed her tv presenting skills in an environment where there’s little room for error or nerves, on live tv three hours daily as anchor of flagship breakfast tv show, ‘Ireland AM’, ‘Saturday AM’, ‘Sunday AM’ and ‘Weekend AM‘. Anna didn’t just anchor these shows, she pitched the idea of the weekend version which was launched in 2015 and Anna co-anchored alongside much loved Irish actor Simon Delaney. They went on to double the ratings target within the first 6 months on air.
Looking at homes she can’t afford is a hobby of Anna’s and she managed to turn this past-time into another presenting role when she pitched the idea for a modern day ‘Cribs’ to Virgin Media and together they created ‘Dream House’, a primetime property show Anna co-hosted with style guru Darren Kennedy.
Anna launched her ethical clothing brand ‘Little Bliss’ in 2021 and it continues to gain loyal fans for it’s colourful aesthetic and sustainable ethos. As a result of launching this brand, Anna has now become a firm favourite for hosting duty at business events and awards ceremonies across all genres. A trusted host who doesn’t take herself too seriously.
Anna has been lucky enough to have been granted exclusive Irish access to intimate sit-down interviews with the world’s biggest names. From academy award-winning actress Kate Winslet to Will Ferrell, Helen Mirren and Chris O’Dowd to name but a few. Anna has talked style & business (among other things!) with Khloe Kardashian, Victoria Beckham & Jo Malone but is equally at ease with sporting greats like Rory McIlroy and Gary Lineker. She’s exchanged recipes with Jamie Oliver and gone backstage to chat with rock legends Kiss and guitarist Slash and was granted an exclusive in-depth interview with U2’s Adam Clayton. In 2019, Anna landed another exclusive being the only Irish TV personality to sit down for an exclusive chat with Emma Thompson. All in a day’s work for Anna who’ll handle whatever is thrown at her with ease and confidence regardless of how last minute it might be!
A regular voice on podcasts, tv and radio, Anna will contribute to fun and frivolous or drive a panel of guests from parenting to business, lifestyle to health topics and always ensure the event is engaging, relevant and often trends across social media given her hugely engaged social media following. Anna has featured across all major channels and shows and even contributed to Good Morning America when she was asked to give the Irish take on some entertainment stories for US audiences.
Anna works with many prestigious brands, foundations and charities and is an ambassador for the Marie Keating foundation, a cancer charity in which she co-hosts the annual tv telethon with Ronan Keating. In February 2023 Anna was announced as the ambassador for National Daffodil Day in Ireland, a hugely important fundraising day for the Irish Cancer Society.
Anna lives in the seaside town of Greystones, Co Wicklow but regularly finds herself working between Dublin and London. Married to Ben they have three boys together; James (11), Euan (9) and Rhys (6). Life is busy and home is noisy but Anna wouldn’t have it any other way!

Luckily for me when I team up with brands for projects or collaborations, they tend to be long-lasting. No flash-in-the-pan business here! The main reason we tend to bond is that I choose to work with brands that have similar values so we appreciate each other. There’s often plenty of discretionary goodwill where both sides go above and beyond. Examples of this are the likes of Mothercare Ireland, SEAT and the Marie Keating Foundation.read more
