There are few individuals it can be said altered the course of World War Two on their own - but one was a Dublin librarian. And he did it, not on the battlefields of France or Japan but, in a room in McKee Barracks on Dublin's North Circular Road. (2017)
Clare Cronin is a graduate of UCC and a post-graduate of DCU's Journalism school. She spent a busy decade as a print journalist filing reports on matters as local as sheep dip committees, and as international as the Air India crash. Topics as varied as politics, business and theatre were all covered with equal gusto.
Apart from national papers, some of these reports took a broadcast form on RTÉ and BBC Radio 4, and in recent times she has started to produce her own radio work.
She spent a few years working as content developer in New York and several more as a university lecturer in Japan. In Dublin she also delivers FETAC courses on radio and communications at Dun Laoghaire College of Further Education.
