On this episode of BYLINE, we’re speaking with Aoife Grace Moore about her career, and of course the story she and Paul Hosford broke at the Irish Examiner, now known as Golfgate. It’s a story that shook the Irish nation, its government, and the EU Commission, and led to the resignation and disciplining of multiple political figures, including the EU Trade Commissioner, Phil Hogan, and the second Minister for Agriculture of this administration, Dara Calleary.
Aoife is a journalist with the Irish Examiner working the political beat, who got the scoop of the year, instigating conversations about accountability in public life, and bruising a government that has a habit of denting itself. In this episode, she discusses breaking Golfgate, her eclectic start in journalism from Scotland to Melbourne, and more.
