Documentary Maker: Donal O'Herlihy

Donal loves stories, telling them or being told them. He doesn't care what they're about, it's all in the telling. Cyclists, spy catchers and mysterious plaques have occupied his mind of late.

He's worked at RTE for 17 years as a researcher, reporter, presenter and producer. Before joining the Documentary on One he was Deputy Editor of RTE's Investigations Unit and worked on Living on the List, a number of foster care stories and the investigation into the charity Console amongst others.

Donal lives in Dublin with his beloved nine-year-old daughter.
