About Me

Currently working as an assistant lecturer at Dublin Institute of Technology where I teach in the School of Media. Also work as a freelance journalist and consultant specialising in Freedom of Information, data journalism, and investigative reporting. 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: (www.rte.ie/investigations). 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.
