Sadhbh Murphy : Sadhbh Murphy : Sales and Acquisitions Executive. Now mother to one of the cutest children (Conor) on the planet. She has worked in Network Ireland Television since 2007, happily eating and sleeping short films, dramas and factual programming.
Her background is in international TV distribution working in Alliance Atlantis's Dublin operational office before coming to NITV. And it all started with a History degree in college - isn't it funny where life takes you! She is rather partial to attending to odd fabulous film festival.
Sylvia Lynch: Sylvia Lynch: Sylvia seamlessly joined the team in September 2011. Since then she has set Derry up with many a great concert ticket - Florence and the Machines exclusive album launch in London being the favourite so far!
