Irish Tatler Woman of the Year in Media 2018, Áine is Co-Founder and COO at Kinzen – formerly Neva Labs – an ambitious new media project which aims to build a daily news experience that YOU control. A very welcome development in days when we are awash with surplus, and often irrelevant news!

She was instrumental in creating the Facebook Journalism Project and the News Integrity Initiative (NII). Before joining Facebook in March 2016, she spent five years at Storyful, where she served as head of content and political editor before being appointed managing editor in at the time of the company’s acquisition by News Corporation.
Áine will bring us a wealth of knowledge and insights into the world of media and social media management having spent over seven years working as a political correspondent and news reporter with The Irish Times, The Irish Independent and The Irish Examiner. Áine is on the board of the NII, an advisor to the Institute for Future of Media and Journalism (Fujo), and co-founder of Online News Association (ONA) Ireland.
