RTE presenter Louise McSharry has shared that she is free from cancer.

The 31-year-old was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in August and has taken a sabbatical from her 2fm radio show to focus on her health.

She shared the exciting news on Twitter and thanking the hospital staff for their help in her recovery.


"So #DaffodilDay seems like the perfect day to tell you that I got the results of my scan, and I don't have cancer anymore! It turns out modern medicine is very effective. Also, the incredible staff of Vincent's Ward in the Mater are unstoppable.

"Thinking a lot about people still dealing with cancer or have just been diagnosed. I won't ever stop I don't think, as I have been so lucky.

"My phone is about to die but you are all incredibly kind and I really really appreciate all the warmth you've shown today and throughout."

She returned to the airwaves for one day on New Year's and is hoping to return to the state broadcaster full-time in June.


She has also been planning her wedding to fiance Gordon Spierin which is set to take place this summer.

"We're having it down in Cork and I'm starting to feel like I have a picture of what I want - a lot of gold glitter, that's my main focus at the moment," Louise recently told the Herald.

"The dress-trying-on experience was quite stressful - it's really hard because all the dresses only have each style in one size so you're never trying something on that fits you.

"So they're either strapping you into something that's too small for you or you're drowning in a dress that's too big for you, so you can't really get an idea of whether or not you'd look nice in it.
