It's hard, at first, to get past Ciara Doherty's irresistible Donegal accent. It's shaped her career at key junctures so last week, as she took over hosting duties on The Tonight Show, it was like a soothing balm in the plummy world of Irish current affairs.

Her style of presenting is notably less confrontational than predecessors Matt Cooper or Ivan Yates - it's more an Emily Maitlis-type approach she's going for, she says - and she was warmly praised online for her incisive, intelligent interviews.
