I'd love to pen my own novel, says energetic Sinead

TV3 presenter Sinead Desmond has revealed how she would love to put pen to paper and write a book.

Prior to making the move to early-morning TV with Ireland AM, she was a Fleet Street regular as she worked as a journalist in London.

But the small-screen star revealed to the Diary how she would relish the prospect of returning to her writing roots.

"Writing has always been my passion," she said. "I would love to write a book - I'd probably take a stab at fiction."

With a host of interviews with great authors under her belt, she said that her Ireland AM gig has given her the perfect chance to indulge her love for books.

And she quipped how she wouldn't rule out drawing on her real-life experience.

"I could write a kiss-and-tell book about what goes on behind the scenes on a breakfast show. But I might have to wait for a few people to die first," she joked.

And she admits she has nearly too much energy, despite having to get up at 4.30am every day.

Speaking about Ireland AM being her dream job, she added: "It's as close to print journalism as I can get, I get bored easily and I've yet to get bored in there."


Last Friday saw Ireland AM celebrating 15 years on-air with a special live show which saw them joined by a host of special guests.

Among them was Essex underwear model David Gandy who sent temperatures soaring in the studio.

Although she rarely loses her cool, viewers were bemused to see Sinead clearly lost for words as she interviewed the Dolce & Gabanna model.

"I completely fell for him. I've never seen anyone have that effect on women," she said.
