Welcome to the “Work with Me” Page of the website. Hi, I’m Úna-Minh Kavanagh, and I’m the chief scribbler here at the good news website WeAreIrish.ie and BeforeMyMamDies.com. I’ve got a background in journalism and new media, and a BA in Gaeilge agus Iriseoireacht (Irish and Journalism) from DCU. I’m a fluent Irish speaker and have been blogging online since 2011.
WeAreIrish.ie is open to collaborations.
I’ve worked in everything from Internet research and social media management to proofreading, news-writing, and multimedia content creation. I’ve done talks, been on podcasts, panels and have hosted blogging masterclasses.
My book Anseo came out in 2019 and was published by New Island Books and I’m currently working on my second book. Please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn and let me know if you’re coming from this page.
Despite the “Minh” part of my name and how I look, I’m very much Irish. I am a native English speaker and I’m fluent in the Irish language.
As a freelancer, I am flexible with respect to the variety of work you may need as well as working hours and time differences. I’m well-rounded, open-minded and eagerly listen and learn from my clients to give them all an individualised service.
My previous clients include PR companies, museums, magazines, tour companies, business websites and tourism boards. I’m always up for a challenge.
There are several options you can choose, should you decide that you’d like to work with me. All of these would require me chatting with you about what you’d like either by phone/email/Skype to get a better picture. Below are just a few ideas:
Branded Content: Your product/company receives its own promotional post written by me but in my own voice. How many times it’s shared and time frames can be negotiated. All posts supported by advertising must contain a disclosure statement within the piece.
Campaigns: Can include real-time social media coverage, several blog posts featuring the destination or brand, targeted social media events like Twitter chats, TikTok videos, live-streams or content creation.
Advertising: Can include side banners or featured posts on the homepage of WeAreIrish.ie or on post pages.
I will only look to partner/work with brands that reflect my values for this site: companies that promote good, positive Irish news, stories and preferably brands that demonstrate a commitment to sustainable tourism with an Irish connection.
