The Week in Politics election book and Timisoara

I’ve contributed a couple of chapters to a book about the recent Irish general election, which has been published by RTE. The book, launched by Taoiseach Enda Kenny, gives a detailed analysis of the election with a constituency-by-constituency breakdown. It also features several articles written by RTE’s political staff including Sean O’Rourke, Bryan Dobson, David McCullagh, David Davin-Power and Brian Dowling. Edited by The Week in Politics’ Deirdre McCarthy, it also contains interviews with the TDs in the 31st Dail. A feature about social media and a diary-type summary of the election campaign are my two contributions to the book. More about it here.

In other news, I recently participated in a television journalism course for young journalists in Timisoara, Romania. I was one of 16 journalists from across Europe at the Circom-run course. I learned a lot from the trainers as well the others participating. If you have a couple of minutes take a look at the report I did while I was there, which was recently broadcast on RTE.

Hoping that the rain will stop soon,
