‘What’s for you won’t pass you’

When I graduated I was set on working within the equine industry in some capacity. My studies drew me towards Marketing. I ignored this to try and get a job in the ‘right’ environment. Funnily enough, feedback I got from one interview revolved around a lack of passion for the job role. I knew then…

Overcoming the Graduate Blues

‘Graduate Blues’ usual come from the withdrawal of a college lifestyle- commonly centering around a fantastic social life. I’ve discovered there can be much more to it than that! I finished uni and I thought I had no idea what I wanted to do. I say ‘thought’ because I think everyone has some idea. I…

Dublin Racing Festival

This year was the first for Dublin Racing Festival. Previously top quality race days were ran separately. The result- an incredible weekend with top class sporting action. I made the journey up with my family, a welcome alternative to the bus! On arrival I was immediately struck by the work that had gone into this…

An Irish Hunting Holiday for the English

From day one of studying in England, I couldn’t miss the regard people held for hunting in Ireland. I didn’t really understand it and had imagined hunting in the UK couldn’t have fallen short. After more than three years of talk about this ‘bucket list’ experience, I said it was time to fill this void…

Exploring the East

The West of Ireland has always been my first port-of-call when heading for a coastal area. The convenience and beauty of Kerry and Clare are hard to surpass, however, Wicklow is right up there. Last week, a working visit to Nursing Homes in Kildare somehow led to an adventurous night away in Wicklow. Bray was…

Activities

Found yourself looking for inspiration in filling those hours spent indulging over Christmas? I’ve found myself looking outside the box to entertain, particularly with these short evenings. Weekends allow for a bit more variety. You can get good value for those hours of daylight! I love combining leisure with exercise. These are a few of…

The Lady behind the Lense

This week I have been working with Limerick Racecourse taking over their social media activity throughout the course of Christmas, particularly through their four days of Christmas racing. The requirements of this job were to take photos or videos that appeal to people who are, or would be, interested in Limerick Racecourse and post these…

The Old Irish Ways

Moving back home to Ireland was always going to be a strange transition. But I found myself falling back into my old ways easier than I thought possible. It started with settling back into my bedroom, reuniting with the dogs (more like sheep in one case!) and catching up with friends and family I wouldn’t…

The Career Plan

I have come back to Ireland from the UK with a fairly basic business degree.. but I do know that I want to be a  Marketeer. The trouble is that i’m not the only one with this aim and there happens to be quite an abundance of graduates in a similar position to me. A…

Women in Racing

I came across this organisation in the lead up to the Aintree Grand National festival. Offering a race day package including a tour of the Grand National course with industry leaders, a champagne brunch and a private facility for the day. The biggest draw for me was the group of people that this event brought…
