MORNING Edition host Keelin Shanley is counting down the days until the current affairs series wraps for the summer.
The mum-of-two says she cannot wait to set the alarm clock to snooze and catch up on her beauty sleep.
"I am normally in bed at 9.30pm at night because I have to get up around 5am. So I'm looking forward to not having the early starts. Believe me; I have a very tired team looking forward to a break," she told The Diary.
Keelin says her husband Conor Ferguson will be delighted she can enjoy a few late nights.
"I've never had to get up this early for work before – it's great for the kids but it's not great for the husband because he's staying up on his own at night."
Keelin and Conor will get a taste of La Dolce Vita later this summer when they fly off to Italy for some sunshine and fine wine.
"We're going to see our friend in Italy for a week and are looking forward to that," she said.
"We will also be heading to Mayo for a couple of weeks at the beginning of July."
