Shane joined us in 2019 and is now the Director of Policy and Communications at Chambers Ireland. He supports the work of the Chamber Network over a range of policy areas, with a particular interest in bringing together digitisation, infrastructure, and the building sustainable cities and communities to support the Green Transition.
His primary responsibilities include conducting research and developing papers to support Chambers Ireland’s policy positions.
Prior to Chambers Ireland, Shane worked with a number of members of the Oireachtas and civil society organisations, creating communications programmes, conducting research, 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.
