About Gráinne Seoige

Gráinne Seoige is one of Ireland’s foremost and distinguished Broadcasters, TV presenters and Journalists. She has worked with RTÉ for the past 10 years, where she has presented a range of television shows throughout the decade including one of RTÉ’s flagship afternoon shows ‘Seoige’, the ‘All Ireland Talent Show’ a music talent show, ‘Up for the Match’ a sports talk show; the ‘People of the Year Awards’; the documentary series ‘Gráinne Seoige’s Modern Life’ and ‘Great Irish Journeys’ about the Irish famine; and the ‘Crime Call’ programme series.

Gráinne has also presented three UK breakfast television shows; ITV's breakfast show ‘GMTV’; she was Features Editor on ‘Daybreak’ in 2010 and 2011 and she also presented ‘Sky News Sunrise’ with Eamonn Holmes.

Gráinne is unique in Ireland as she is the only broadcaster to not only have worked with all four Irish TV channels RTÉ, TV3, TG4 and SKY, but was also the original News Anchor who launched three of those channels - TG4 in 1996; TV3 in 1998 and SKY News Ireland in 2004. Grainne is a previous IFTA nominee for the Award for TV Personality of the Year

More recently Gráinne splits her time between her business work in Ireland and South Africa where she has developed and launched a specialised Diamond and jewellery business called ‘Grace Diamonds’ which is actively delivering high quality diamonds to an Irish and international market, at cost-effective prices from her local African-based network and resources.

The Academy’s previous ‘Women in Focus’ Conference at the Foundry, presented in partnership with Matheson, was a resounding success, with insights shared from broadcasters Miriam O’Callaghan and Elaine Crowley, filmmakers Colin and Darren Thornton (A Date for Mad Mary) and Girl Crew Co-Founder Aine Mulloy to name a few. IFTA-winning Actress and Comedienne Deirdre O’Kane was IFTA’s guest at the opening ‘Women in Focus’ event in April earlier of this year.

The leading industry speaker for the next ‘Women in Focus’ event has been announced as one of Ireland’s thriving comedy talents, Actress, Writer and Producer Sharon Horgan. Who will speak to IFTA members and invited guests on December 10th. The Women in Focus evening series is presented in partnership with Davy.
