Sky's the limit for Rachel Wyse, but she loves every minute of it . . .

She might be home over the summer to present Sky's GAA coverage but we won't be seeing Rachel Wyse on Irish TV any time soon.

The Blackrock native has been with Sky Sports since 2010 and says she "pinches herself" about how lucky she is to work there.

"Who knows what's going to happen in the future and in terms of coming home, I just don't know," she told the Herald.

"I work in one of the busiest sports newsrooms in Europe - they've access to some of the best sporting events in the world so I kind of pinch myself because I'm really, really lucky where I am.

"Who would have thought five years ago they would have sent me to cover the All-Ireland final in Croke Park and things like that?

"So, hopefully, a few more doors open in Sky - I'd love to stay there."

"I love living in London and I feel I'm settled into my working life as well," she added.

The 30-year-old will jet back to Ireland each weekend to cover the championship and says she loves getting to spend time with her family.

"For the next few weeks I'll be heading to all different parts of the country, but when it gets to August I stay with my parents for three days before and after the games, which is lovely," she said.

"I'm going to go to Kilkenny today to see my godson - he turned one two weeks ago and I haven't seen him for a bit now.

"So I'm taking two days off, then we're heading for Wexford," she added.

Rachel was in town to launch the Make My Magnum Experience in the windows of Arnotts. The pop-up shop opens today and runs until August 16.
