I am an Irish journalist currently living in Dublin. I have an MA in Journalism from Edinburgh Napier University and an undergraduate degree in English and Psychology from NUI Galway . I presented and produced a breakfast show for 3 years on NUI Galway’s FlirtFM and have written articles for several newspapers and magazines and online publications across Ireland and the UK, including Buzz magazine, Edinburgh Evening News, The Dundalk Democrat and Edinburgh Napier News.
From May to August 2011 I worked as an intern with Radio Forth in Edinburgh as part of their newsteam- recording and editing audio for their news bulletins. I also have another website on alternative Scottish culture – uncoveringscotland.wordpress.com.
From November 2011 to June 2012 I interned with the Irish Jesuit Mission Office in Dublin working on their website. I also used to present my own radio show Lunch Date with Orla on Fridays at 12pm on www.louthinternetradio.com. until July 2012.
With a mixture of articles, audio and video this is the right place to get the latest news and views on what’s happening in the world. Comments welcome.
