About Me

If you’re looking for great content then WeAreIrish is for you.

The Ultimate Goal – An Aidhm

WeAreIrish was created by me, Úna-Minh Kavanagh (hello!), to share good news, inspirational stories and positive pieces about Irish people. B’aoibhinn liom dea-scéala a fhógairt, I love to share good and uplifting news as well as stories about the Irish language.

Let’s face it – the world is in need of good stories these days.

The Founder – An Bunaitheoir

My name is Úna-Minh Kavanagh (Úna-Minh is my first name) and I’m a multimedia content creator and author from Co. Kerry. I work as an Assistant Producer at Die Gute Fabrik (the award-winning indie game studio behind Mutazione). I’ve a BA in Irish and Journalism from Dublin City University and Professional Cert. in Digital Policy from UCD, and I’ve been constantly curious my whole life.

I’ve always wanted to try new things – after all, we’re only here in this moment, once.


I love finding stories and I see content as a collaborative effort between myself and the people online and around me!

WeAreIrish is a spin-off of a project I did in 2017 which aimed to showcase various people of all shapes, colours and ethnicities that we have in Ireland today.

At the time I didn’t think about creating a website but as the years went by and news organisations started to focus on more bleak content, I realised that we could do so much more to promote the good in the world.

And so, in 2020, this website was born.

WeAreIrish was simply formed out of a desire to share good news and interesting stories.

A little more about the journalistic me: I’ve previously written for the newsroom in Lonely Planet, was the content manager for Cooks Academy, was a community journalist for WorldIrish.com (now Irish Central) and worked full-time as a Staff Writer for Her.ie

My work has appeared extensively online and offline and I’ve done many interviews on the radio, been a keynote speaker at events, hosted seminars and masterclasses, and have been on many panels.
