3News Political Editor Ursula Halligan to step down
13 Jul 2017 :
Following almost nineteen years covering politics with TV3, the broadcaster has confirmed Halligan will leave by the end of August.

In her time at TV3 Halligan has reported on four general elections and during the tenures of four different Taoisigh.

She was TV3’s first ever political correspondent and is an award-winning journalist whose analysis of the political happenings of the day made her one of the country’s most trusted commentators. She also hosted her own political show ‘The Political Party’ for nearly five years.

Mick McCaffrey, Head of 3News Ireland:
“Ursula has made a valuable contribution to TV3 over the past 18 years and was always an independent voice in politics, going beyond the spin and hype to give our viewers the real story of what was happening at Leinster House. She was respected across all political parties for her insights and independence. We would like to thank Ursula for her dedicated service and wish her the very best for the future.”
