Career

Looney writes columns for The Daily Irish Mail and Woman's Way.[2]

She regularly contributed to The Gerry Ryan Show on RTÉ 2fm and filled in for Ryan on 30 April 2010, the day he died.[3][4] Their fondness for one another led to Looney being dubbed Ryan's "on-air wife" and she was considered a possibility as his replacement.[5] She was previously a regular contributor to topical comedy show The Panel. Looney's other television credits include working as a reporter for news programme Capital D. She previously worked as a writer for the political music magazine, Hot Press, had a career with BBC Radio in London and was a scriptwriter for Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ).

Debut play Dandelions was a success and garnered comparisons to the American television series Desperate Housewives.[6]

Personal life

Looney has a husband, Steve, and three children: two daughters, Ciara (born 1997), and Uainín (born 2001) and one son, Cian (born 1999), all of whom feature regularly in her columns.[7] She has a dog called Dennis.[8]
