Damien O Reilly Diploma in Media & Broadcasting Testimonial

Damien O’Reilly

Radio Producer & Presenter RTE Radio 1

MND Media & Broadcasting

I have been working in RTE Radio 1 for the past ten years. I produce and present on Radio One each Saturday morning at 8.30am. I also stand in for Joe Duffy on Liveline and I also present the sport on Morning Ireland from time to time. Before joining RTE in 1998, I worked in Shannonside Northern Sound Radio for five years. I was a BJS (now MND – Diploma in Media & Broadcasting) ¬†student in Senior College from 1990 to 1992. Without doubt, I would never have made it in the media world without my time in Ballyfermot. I learned so much about the media, and many of the tips and hints I learned from there back then, I still use today in my work. I made friends for life there whom I keep in regular contact with. And it’s thanks to Brenda, Joan, Fergal, John and Jim that I am still working in radio today.
