Background

Hailing from Galway Edel spend her first career in financial services and stakeholder management for global multinational clients. She later moved to business development where roles saw her travel to US, Australia , Europe and some tax domiciles - ask me about the barbary macaque ape’s in Gibraltar and my missing sunglasses one day! A sabbatical travelling around South America saw her pivot her career completely and join the National Tourism Development Agency where she has enjoyed a range of roles from training and development, regional development, national festivals and major events and more recently working on the Rugby World Cup 2023 bid.

Favourite thing to do in Dublin:

As a country girl I love that Dublin is a city steeped with history but also within easy reach of the mountains and sea. A perfect weekend would be spent running along the beach at Dolymount strand and marvelling at the acrobatics of the kite surfers or walking the stunning coastal path from Bray to Greystones and enjoying the spectacular views from the Dart travelling back to the city. Finish the day catching up with friends over a glass of red wine at some of Dublin’s legendary music venues and I’m a happy camper!
