Miriam Meets... is an Irish radio talk show. The programme began initially in July 2009, as a summer filler, presented by Prime Time and Saturday Night with Miriam presenter Miriam O'Callaghan. The show is broadcast on a Saturday morning.

In August 2009, it was announced the programme will have a permanent slot on a Sunday morning, just before The Marian Finucane Show.[2][3] The programme is sponsored by Airtricity.[4]

Miriam Meets...[edit]


Miriam Meets.. originally began an eight-week run, to fill in for Eamon Dunphy's Conversations with Eamon Dunphy, while he had summer holidays.[5] Dunphy later announced he would cease presenting the programme.[6] RTÉ confirmed in August 2009, that the programme would move to a permanent home on Sunday's at 10.00.[2]


The programme has similarities to Dunphy's programme, but features two guests compared to one.[4] The two guests are connected through "love, life or family ties". Like Conversations with Eamon Dunphy, the guests are asked to request three pieces of music.[1]
