Eileen Dunne

A life in News

Venue: Church of Ireland

Obviously Eileen Dunne has not spent her entire life in the business of news gathering and delivery, it probably just feels like that. She might well have gone in the same direction as her much revered father, Mick Dunne, who for years was RTÉ’s GAA correspondent. Instead, in the early 1980s, after a brief stint in Radio Continuity, she began working as a newsreader. From then, until her retirement almost 40 years later, she has seen that role change hugely. Join us to celebrate the career of one of Ireland’s most familiar and best-loved broadcasters. Eileen will be in conversation with Myles Dungan.
