bio (esther’s version)


Esther is a writer and podcaster living in Dublin. She is also an experienced voice-over artist for TV, radio and audio books.  

Currently, Esther writes the back page column ‘Last Word’ for Image Magazine as well as online for, The Sunday Times, the Business Post and Rogue Collective. Other credits include the The Irish Times, Irish Tatler and The Irish Independent.

Esther  is the co-creator and co-host of Emer & Esther’s Sunday Roast with Emer  & Esther, a podcast about the joy of carvery dinners. Each week, Esther and Emer McLysaght travel all over Ireland (Dublin) investigating carvery lunches like the Nicola Tallants of roast potatoes. 

Esther is also a pop culture contributor on Louise McSharry’s chart-topping podcast Catch up where they discuss important topics like The Real Housewives franchise or Billie Eilish’s eyelashes.  She also contributes to the culture panel on RTE Radio One’s Brendan O’Connor Show.

From 2019-2020, she wrote a bi-monthly column for House and Home magazine where she documented her home renovation. It contained little to no practical information a reader could actually use but lots about her Illuminati obsessed floor man and finding the best sink caddy in all the Internet. Recently, she commissioned herself to write this bio. She is also working on her first book.




Through her production company, Esther also develops and produces podcasts for brands and individuals alike. Projects include The Lennon Courtney Podcast, Poz Vibes Podcast and The Trans Vibe Podcast. She also works on a number of podcasts on the Go Loud Network for Bauer Media including Read the Room and Chancers.  Her first podcast, The 80% (her own podcast where she was 80% happy for the success of her guests) was regularly number 1 in the Apple iTunes charts. A simpler time when no one had a podcast or knew what they were. Other productions include Darren Kennedy’s The Secret Life of Celebrity Pets and Am Seo podcast hosted by former GAA star Diarmuid Connelly and Jonathan Courtenay.  Get in touch at if you have an idea you want to bring to life.

Esther presented and produced Saturday Lunch on TXFM from 2014-2016 which was always top of the station’s JNLRs. When TXFM closed, Esther started the The 80% podcast (past guests included Amy Huberman, Ian Dempsey, Sophie White and Aisling Bea).  It is now in retirement but was always a ratings winner and lots of fun to make. She also produced and presented the limited series Esther Is In Bits, a podcast about being in bits and then being better.  Esther also contributes to The Business on Radio 1 .


In addition to all the titles mentioned above, Esther also writes a free newsletter and a not free Patreon diary. 


She can play Silent Night on the tin whistle and is quite tall, in case you needed anything taken down from a high shelf. Book her immediately.
