Orla has been the face of Sky Sport's cycling coverage for some years, as anchor for the network's highlights programme on location from the Giro d'Italia, and broadcasting live from nine Tours de France as well as multiple World Championships and one day races. Orla's wide range of sporting knowledge saw her become the face of Sky Sports News's Olympic coverage for the past two Games (London and Rio) and front coverage of the most recent Commonwealth Games (Glasgow).
Recently Orla has diversified into rugby union, fronting Sky's studio presentation of Super Rugby. She is currently an anchor on Sky Sports News for which she covers the full breadth of mainstream as well as more niche sports. Orla's background in news and investigations has shaped her ability to present and report with a strong journalistic flair, while through her presenting she has gained a wealth of knowledge across a broad range of sports.
Orla is fully bilingual, speaking fluent French, and has broadcast extensively in both French and German. She also speaks Portuguese, Spanish and Italian. Orla is a keen cyclist and yogi, and has recently qualified as a racing driver having passed her ARDS National B racing licence test.
Orla has extensive experience hosting corporate events and has worked with the likes of The British Beer and Pub Association, Rapha, Team Sky, Telegraph Events, Assos Ltd and the Women in Sports Trust, to name a few.
Orla loves any environment with a live audience and enjoys equally hosting an evening awards ceremony, as moderating a debate or hosting on-stage Q&As.
