FÓDHLA - ÁINE NÍ SHLÉIBHÍN

Tá Áine 24 bliain d’aois. Is as chathair Chorcaí di ó dhúchas, ach anois tá sí ag maireachtaint i gcathair na Gaillimhe. Tá Áine ag obair mar chúntóír léirithe le Ros na Rún. Bronnadh céim Ealaíona uirthi – Gaeilge agus tír Eolas, agus ansin, chuaigh sí go dtí cathair na Gaillimhe chun Ard Dioplóma i gCummarsáid Fheidhmeach a bhaint amach. Ba mahith léi dul ag scríobh, go háirithe don teilifís amach anseo.

Is bréa leis an Rós Fodhla GAA – peil & iománaíocht. Ach; admhaíonn sí gur chuaigh sí go dtí cluiche rugbaí le déanai ina raibh Connacht ag imirt, ach b’fhearr léi nach mbeadh a cáirde i gCorcaigh ar an eolas faoi sin!

Is bréa léi a bheith ag éisteacht le cheol na h-Óchtóidí, chomh maith le Des Bishop, Dara O’Briain, Sheryl Crow & Bon Jovi. Bhí páirt bheag aisteoireachta ag Áine cheanna i Ros na Rún, ach thuig sí go luath nach raibh sí chun ghairm bheatha a bhaint amach san aisteoireacht.

Áine is 24 and a native of Cork City now living in Galway City. A Production Assistant with TG4’s Ros na Rún, Áine is a fluent Irish speaker. A graduate of Irish and Geography and with a post graduate diploma in Applied Communication through Irish, Áine plans a career as a script writer with a special interest in TV drama.

The Rós Fódhla has a passion for all matters GAA though she reluctantly admits she recently attended a Rugby game featuring Connacht, and would prefer her friends in Cork, all Munster fans, didn’t know, and 80’s music. Favoured performers are Des Bishop, Dara Ó Briain, Sheryl Crow and Bon Jovi. “I would describe myself as someone who likes making people laugh, either with me or at me”.

Popular perception is that everyone in television wants to appear in front of the camera but Áine is an exception: “I had a speaking part in Ros na Rún. My acting career was short lived as I realised my talents lay very firmly behind the camera!” Áine states, “I’m outgoing and I love meeting new people. I have a great job and I work with a great crew”. Born on Friday October 13 1981 Áine dislikes people who are superstitious!
