A life less ordinary – leading local journalist to address Network Ireland Kilkenny event
A KILKENNY native and one of Ireland’s most respected journalists will be holding a talk about her career and personal development on behalf of an organisation promoting women in business in Kilkenny.
Miriam Donohoe, originally from Goresbridge, will join Network Ireland Kilkenny, a dynamic organisation supporting the professional and personal development of women, at Butler House & Gardens on Tuesday July 23, where she will discuss her life and career.
Miriam currently works as Senior Communications Manager Irish humanitarian aid agency, GOAL. Before this Miriam worked in the Irish media for over 35 years.
As a journalist, she worked for all of the Irish daily newspaper titles, including The Irish Times where she held several senior positions including Asia correspondent, political reporter, news editor, and features editor. As the newspaper’s Asia correspondent in Beijing, she covered the War Against Terrorism in Pakistan and Afghanistan after the September 11 terrorist attacks and was the first Irish journalist to report from North Korea.
Miriam left journalism in 2008 and established a successful PR company, MD Media, with an office in Kilkenny and clients in the South East and Dublin.
After a life-changing trip volunteering as a communications consultant for Hospice Africa Uganda in Kampala recently, Miriam took up the role with GOAL.
Network Ireland membership is made up of a very diverse group of women, from budding entrepreneurs, SME owners, professionals and leaders in indigenous and multinational organisations, to non-profits, charities, arts, and the public sector.
