Gareth O’Callaghan is one of Ireland’s most popular radio presenters, having enjoyed a successful career that has stretched across forty years.
During that period he has worked for many radio stations, both home and abroad, including RTE and BBC.
He also spent a number of years working as a psychotherapist in Ireland.
In 2018, Gareth took early retirement from his radio career after being diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy, a rare and incurable, progressive neurodegenerative disease, which carries a fatal prognosis.
He is the author of six books, including the 2003 No. 1 bestseller, ‘A Day Called Hope’, which documented his own personal journey through and beyond depression.
He spends much of his time these days writing and blogging. He continues to challenge this awful illness through daily physical exercise, while urging others with similar debilitating conditions of the importance to do the same. He lives in Cork.
