Speaker BiosWho is speaking at the IUSA Conference 2017
Rachael English is from Shannon, and can actually remember her first ever report for Morning Ireland which was on Clare’s appearance in the 1992 All Ireland football semi-final (they were beaten by the Dubs).
Before joining RTÉ, she worked for Clare FM in Ennis and, before that, she did a BA in Communication Studies in DCU.
During her time in RTÉ, she has read the news on 2FM, and worked as a reporter on the News at One, on television news and on Today with Pat Kenny. For six years, she presented the evening news programme, Five Seven Live. From that time there is one day that stands out – the hours spent covering the unfolding events in New York and Washington on September the 11th 2001.
Rachael has co-hosted all of RTÉ’s election coverage since 2002.
