Day in the life of a Parliamentary Reporter

Wednesday is the toughest day of the week for a parliamentary reporter, with numerous committee meetings in the morning, Seanad sittings and a Dáil session that stretches into the night.

Day in the life of the Head Usher

I arrive in Leinster House and my first priority is to meet with the two team leaders of the early team. They report that all their staff have arrived and all posts are covered.

Day in the life of an Oireachtas Librarian

I’m first into the Members Reading Room in Leinster House this morning, so I set up the room for the day.

Day in the life of an Oireachtas Press Officer

My first task is to find out what is on the news agenda for the day. If the Oireachtas or its committees have been mentioned in the newspapers, on the radio or on social media, I need to be ready for queries that may come in.
