That would be a different Fionnuala Sweeney...

Teeny tiny Island but we still have loads of people with the same names

Yeah, I've tried to look into the Irish relatives -- even as close as my Grandmother and there are quite a few with the same name in No. Ireland.  Drives me crazy.

Sorry!

In my class at school, there were four guys with the very same name. Hilarious. We had Kevin 1,2,3,4 and they all had the same family name. Typically Irish...

It's a pain in the arse trying to find old friends on Facebook. You can scroll for hours. It's why I gave up on Facebook!

 

Luckily, my parents and grandparents were rebels. All of my immediate family members have unusual or foreign names. To this day, I've never found another person with the same name as me.

Still no news? I'm slightly concerned about everyone who was sacked/ let go isn't appearing elsewhere on TV...

CNNI could do with her quality back... There's no reason why she couldn't have had the iDesk or even weekend Newsroom EMEA slots. Just CNNI wanting cheap blonde bits to present their news.

Seems good in the demos on that site. Wish CNNi could hire her back.

Looking at the post about Monita, it made me search for what Fionnuala is doing now.

Seems she has moved to Washington:

This is also where Leone Lakhani works.

That firm was founded by former CNNI-er Suzanne Kelly, so I guess that makes sense that so many ex-CNNI-ers ended up there. Glad to see Finn is doing well, though I also miss her on TV.

Fionnuala's memories of her time on Eurovision.

1993 - a great year!
