At the office this week

What’s up at the Dublin Startup Commissioner's office this week? Well, lets see...

Derek, our dearly beloved Editor of Dublin Globe has left us for a big new role at

Our loss is their gain, but promoting great talent like Derek is what we’re here to do, so Go Derek!!

Wonderfully, Irina, a regular contributor to Dublin Globe, is our new Editor.  And just as Derek is pure blue and of Dublin, Irina is brand new, from Bulgaria. She’s been in Dublin 18 months now and we’ve wanted to work with her ever since our first cup of tea.

Derek and Irina talk Dublin tech and the handover of one year old Dublin Globe here.

And there’s another new recruit to the Commish’s team, Ciaran Casey, the data and research analyst behind our shortly launching TechIreland platform.  Welcome, Ciaran! Your work will help Dublin, and Ireland’s innovative companies tell their stories on the international stage!

Last but not least, Summer has arrived in Dublin, and our office, made of glass and overhanging the Liffey river, has become a draw for Dublin’s wetsuit divers who jump off our roof to the adulation of a global audience.

In 2013, Motherland Films made a movie about these divers so if you have 3 minutes, sit back and enjoy their story.
