Course Director Ciaran Ó hEadhra a veteran of many major sports broadcasts from Formula 1 Racing to Championship GAA believes the course provides a great platform for the development of new sports broadcasting talent, ” I’ve been fortunate enough to earn a living for many years covering sport. I’ve gained a tremendous insight during that time into all aspects of Sports broadcasting, working with some of the best on air and technical talent available and this course is a great chance to develop the next generation of sports broadcasting professionals. There’s never been a course particularly targeted at catering for the sector and it can only benefit the industry to provide a resource like this”.
