Shane joined Chambers Ireland in 2019 as a Senior Policy and Research Executive, supporting the work of the Chamber Network over a range of policy areas. His primary responsibilities include conducting research and developing papers to support Chambers Ireland’s policy positions, with a special emphasis on infrastructure and housing policy.
Prior to Chambers Ireland, Shane worked with a number of members of the Oireachtas and civil society organisations, creating communications programmes, conducting research, developing policy papers, and drafting legislation/amendments.
As a data nerd Shane tends to work with rstats and Python, he is particularly interested in regionalisation, and how the impact of policies vary between sectors and across geographical ranges.
Outside of his Chambers Ireland activities Shane is a writer, performer, and a keen cyclist. On rare occasions he has managed to combine all three.
