World Press Photo - Young Journalist Spotlight 2014

In October 2014 I was honoured to have my work exhibited for the first time at World Press Photo Dublin, under the banner of Young Journalist Spotlight. Organisers wanted World Press Photo to have an impact on its visit to Dublin and so organisers chose three Journalists to feature alongside the exhibition. 

A Bower for Sisters and My T1 Life both featured as part of this month long exhibit in CHQ Dublin

As part of being featured in the exhibit we also took part in a work shop with world renowned Photographer Robin Hammond, himself a World Press Photo winner. It was an amazing experience, and the part that will stay with me for a long time to come, was hearing the words of our former President Mary Robinson as she officially opened the exhibit. I was honoured to have the opportunity to meet with her and once again inspired by her words. 

Some media outlets also highlighted the occasion, including The Clare Champion, The Offaly Independant, The Tullamore Tribune, Clare FM and TheJournal.ie.
