It looks as though Eileen Dunne is back in the media game as the former newsreader has taken up an exciting new job.
Having worked with RTÉ for more than 40 years, Eileen hung up her presenting reigns last November and retired from the national broadcaster.
However, it has now been announced that Eileen has joined the team at Alice Public Relations.
Working as a Senior Training Consultant, Eileen will focus on providing training in media spokesperson skills.
The company which has offices in Dublin and Belfast provides training in an array of sectors including crisis communications, public affairs, and digital marketing.
“We are delighted to have a journalist of Eileen’s calibre joining our media training team,” shared Martina Quinn, Founder and Managing Director of Alice PR.
“Over her career with RTE, she covered some of the biggest stories of the past four decades, including multiple General Elections, historic referendum campaigns, the talks leading to the Good Friday Agreement, and Queen Elizabeth’s visit to Ireland.”
Adding: “Eileen is perfectly placed to put our training clients through their paces, ensuring they are well prepared and know what to expect in advance of media interviews.”
