DEPUTY DIGITAL EDITOR Maeve Connolly worked as a news reporter for the Irish News for over a decade before joining the digital revolution. Her reporting has taken her to Malawi, Rome and the glamorous surrounds of a Birmingham park for a papal visit. She has also hung out with the Dalai Lama for three days (they didn't stay in touch) and has been writing a column for the newspaper since 2000. At present her smartphone is laden down with apps but she's firmly of the opinion that apps are like shoes, you can never have enough.
