Barry Kenny irish rail on travel

I am the corporate communications manager with Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail). I have been working in Irish Rail basically my entire working life. I’m from Dublin originally but ended up going to college in UL (University of Limerick) to do a Business and French degree. I then did a post grad in PR and got a two week work placement in Irish Rail and I suppose that was it then. That’s 17 years ago now and I’m still here. It’s a never-a-dull-moment kind of a place here and it’s a job I do enjoy.

It’s a job that has given me the opportunity to travel a bit as well. Travel would be, obviously, one of my major interests in life. My other interests revolve around sport and politics to be extremely broad about things. I suppose for work I don’t have to travel too much really as I am based here in Dublin. Considering we are an Irish company I don’t have to travel abroad too much which is handy. I just spin around the rail network.

Frankly, travel for me is never a chore. It’s the one thing that I will actively save for. I like to get a good break and holiday away. As I said I’m not one of these people who travel for business and have to constantly go through busy airports. I guess that’s why I enjoy travelling and you will never hear a grumble from me.
