Carole Coleman and Olivia O’Leary Visit

Transition Year students were delighted to welcome broadcasters and journalists, Carole Coleman and Olivia O’Leary to Dominican College in recent weeks. Both spoke eloquently about how they progressed in their careers. Recalling a time before mobile phones and electronic print, they explained that when they began writing articles they would have to read out their written pieces over the phone so that a typist could type their articles in the newspaper office.

Both speakers vividly described memorable moments from their careers. Carole showed a clip of the famous interview she conducted with American president, President George W. Bush in 2004.  And Olivia described the scene in BBC studios as she hosted Newsnight and news broke about the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

Olivia and Carole finished up by taking questions from students and concluded with some inspirational words for those considering venturing into the world of communications or politics.

Many thanks to the students of 4.1 who organised the day and welcomed our esteemed visitors.
