About Me

Director of Right to Know, an Irish transparency organisation that campaigns for greater information access.

Work as a freelance journalist and trainer, specialising in Freedom of Information, data journalism, and investigative reporting.

Previously worked as editor of an investigative journalism project called Noteworthy by Journal Media.

Lectured at the Technological University Dublin (formerly DIT) where I taught on the journalism, public relations, and political communications courses in the School of Media.

I worked for two years with the RTÉ Investigations Unit, where I helped establish the unit’s website and also worked on long-term television projects and major online data projects.

Author of two books, Snouts in the Trough: Politicians and their expenses and Revenge, a true crime book.

Winner of TV3 Story of the Year Award for 2009 following a series of stories in the sadly departed Sunday Tribune, which led to the resignation of Ceann Comhairle John O’Donoghue. A long-running series of articles that same year regarding expenses led to major changes in the way politicians were paid allowances.
