Event description

Description

Griffith College's faculty of Journalism and Media Communications invites you to Griffith Connects.

Please join us on August 31st at Griffith College Dublin to hear Irish Examiner Journalist Michael Clifford discuss his new book with Griffith College alumna and Journalist Ellie O'Byrne.

The media has come under increased scrutiny in recent times, with the rise of fake news and unsubstantiated claims populating our news feeds. Thorough investigative journalism is required now more than ever, as are ethical, honest journalists – such as Michael Clifford and Ellie O’Byrne.

When being awarded Journalist of the Year 2016, Michael was described as "a writer whose commentaries and analysis are invariably grounded in careful research and inquiry”, with a writing style “that is strong, courageous, lucid and accessible”. His credibility and writing style have earned Michael a dedicated readership, and we can only speculate that his book (to be released on September 7th) will be a resounding success.

Ellie O’Byrne is a Griffith College Cork graduate, and now lectures in the faculty of Journalism and Media. In 2015 Ellie was awarded funding from the prestigious Simon Cumbers Media Fund to travel to Africa and produce a multimedia project under the mentorship of Della Kilroy from Storyful.com. Like Michael, Ellie’s work is refreshingly honest and representative of great journalism.


We look forward to welcoming you to this free event! Food and beverages will be available on the night!
