Irish Times article on Michael Martin visit to Tyndall

It’s not every day you get to draft quotes and write briefing documents for the Taoiseach.  When Michael Martin TD paid a visit to Tyndall National Institute with very short notice, my colleagues did the heavy lifting needed to prepare for a ministerial site visit. I was happy to draft the initial press release, including quotes, and to write a briefing document communicating the science of the laboratory being opened on this occasion.

While I had previously written releases, quotes and sound bytes for both TDs and Senators, this was my first Taoiseach and thus, particularly notable. It was also rewarding to see both the event and the release in the Irish Times.
