Clíodhna Duffy

Postgraduate Student
Bachelor of Arts

Master’s student Clíodhna Duffy, prepping for a career in broadcasting and journalism, is committed to showing how the Irish language is alive and well – and how it can flourish – in the age of Twitter and Instagram. Her thesis, “New Technology as an instrument in the Current Revival of the Irish Language,” is part of her Master’s in Nua Ghaeilge coursework. She came to the programme having completed her undergraduate degree at MU in Media Studies and Nua Ghaeilge and with support from a Maynooth Taught Master’s Alumni Scholarship. The course, she said, is giving her the skills and confidence to be ready for the camera and to think on her feet.
