Dil's story...
President Michael D. Higgins & Sabina Higgins with Dil in Aras an Uachtarain
8th March 2013
Dil set out to build her life and stumbled across her
dream job - media!

She was barely
19
when she started working as a
broadcaster
but was advised to hide her sexuality. Not wanting to compromise her true identity, at
21
Dil abandoned her media dream and took a job as a
flight attendant
based in
Bahrain
.
Dil came to Ireland 13 years ago, started as a
kitchen porter
and after working as a
senior recruitment consultant
and setting up her own
training company
she reclaimed her dream job -
Broadcaster and Journalist!

Dil is now an Irish citizen and is proud to call Ireland her home!
