FIRST UP: SINÉAD BURKE

A series of lunchtime talks from the creative minds at the forefront of Irish culture, science and the arts.

The unique individuals featured in the First Up series believed in an idea and did everything possible to make that idea work. They invested in their own talent and creativity in order to create a career or lifestyle suited to their vision and personal aspirations.

The speakers will tell their own stories from the beginning, how they developed their ideas and will share their plans for the future.

Sinéad Burke is a primary school teacher, a PHD student, a broadcaster, the Alternative Miss Ireland emeritus, a public speaker and the blogger behind Minnie Mélange where she profiles and interviews women under the title of Extraordinary Women.
