It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of our friend Keelin Shanley. We had the pleasure of working with Keelin over a five-year period as Master of Ceremonies for the Business to Arts Awards. During that time she also worked as MC at the Irish Book Awards and Accenture’s International Women’s Day Events.

Speaking about Keelin, Andrew Hetherington, Chief Executive of Business to Arts said, “Keelin was a natural choice as master of ceremonies for our Awards. She had a great ability to hold an audience and seamlessly move between official ceremony and lighter conversation with winners. She was a strong advocate for women in media, and the arts, and was interested in the work of Business to Arts. As well as being an accomplished journalist and presenter known to everyone, she was a close friend of many people that are a part of our organisation. Our heartfelt sympathies to her husband Conor, her children, family and colleagues at RTE.”
