Meet the Team

Managing Editor / Community Employment Supervisor:

Susan Daly

I am a Dublin 4 local from Bath Avenue. After 26 years service in a large D4 organisation, I took time out to raise a family. Following the birth of my son, I spent 3 glorious years at home after which I returned to work on a part-time basis with NewsFour.  I took on the role of Advertising Sales Manager and gained valuable experience in the running of the whole operation. When the opening came up for CE Supervisor, I couldn’t believe my luck and was successfully selected for the position. I am a highly organised and hardworking individual and am now fully committed to continuing my career on a full-time basis here at NewsFour.

My initial degree was in English and Classics, followed by a Masters in English Lit., in NUI Maynooth where I worked as a tutor and part-time lecturer. While I loved the buzz of academia a nagging voice told me I was only living from the neck up, so I graduated into Personal Development, and became a total addict! I ended up training in various healing modalities, and worked professionally as a Life Coach for a time. But the writing bug got me again and I set up my own website which explores the nature of what it is to be human in a spiritual body, and other weird things! Arriving at NewsFour was like a natural progression where I get to relate stories on a daily basis. Another of my passions is walking. In 2009 I did the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in beautiful Northern Spain. I think I get inspiration from walking and movement. My theory of life is that we continuously experience our “thinking”, rather than what we’re thinking about. It has kept me sane!

Brian Quinn

I’m a Dublin native, word wrangler and B-movie boffin. Over the last several years I’ve built a career in a variety of film production roles while freelancing as a culture journalist, with bylines including Sight & Sound International Film Magazine and Little White Lies. Coming from a freelance background, I relish the chance to hang up my spurs and grow within an outlet as well loved as NewsFour. I hope to contribute to the team by promoting our community’s thriving arts scene, film industry and lifestyle trends.

I’ve lived in Ringsend my whole life. My family home is over 120 years old. I love writing,reading, and I paint pop art & abstract and enjoy anything creative. Adore Halloween.Completed a Level 5 full award in Business Admin & IT in Ringsend College and finished my Level 6 Train the Trainer from Google in the Fair Play Cafe in November 2021. I am a mother of a teenage son and now is the best time for me to use my writing skills and see what I can achieve starting here in NewsFour as a Journalist/Researcher. I am so excited in starting this new chapter and looking forward to meeting all my new colleagues. In my down time, I like to play tennis, love my PlayStation & watching old movies, going off on rambles around Sandymount beach, and I love a good laugh..

Niamh Byrne

I grew up in Dublin City Centre which is handy as I rarely have to use Dublin’s
transport!  Growing up I loved reading and was hugely inspired by authors such as JK Rowling, Suzanne Collins and even more local artists such as Playwright Sean O Casey. I grew up in a very musical family as my mam and dad are singers/songwriters. I also love singing and taught myself to play the piano. Every opportunity I got to sing I took, and I also sing in mass every weekend in a choir. When I first finished school I spent a year in Blackrock College studying beauty and body therapy. I also love to write and because of this I am really excited to start this new chapter of my life.

Keith Brennan

There were several careers over many years.  I have lived in England and New Zealand. Eventually resettling in Ireland except for a few months in Chicago.As a mature student I completed my Undergraduate Degree in Social Work in Trinity College. A few years later my Masters in Criminology in DIT Grangegorman as TUD was then known. I worked in areas relevant to these qualifications for a time. Just before the Pandemic I completed a career changing qualification in Photography. It was a hobby of mine as a teenager. Back then it involved loading film in cameras and for me developing and printing in black & white! After a break of over two decades I have since warmly embraced digital Photography. I recently obtained my ACE certification in Adobe Photoshop.

Current hobbies surprisingly include Photography. Also Hiking and the Gym supplemented by less healthy food choices. I look forward to working alongside and learning from the professional team here at NewsFour.
