Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Miriam Fitzsimons
This week in our Spotlight Feature series we chat to Donegal native Miriam Fitzsimons who works as a producer here at NemetonTV.
Thosaigh mé ag obair anseo ag tús mhí Dheireadh Fómhair, 2021. I started working in Nemeton TV in October 2021. I had been working in RTÉ Sport for a few years before that so I’m here about 8 months now producing on GAA BEO and really enjoying it.
It’s hard to describe a typical day because the great thing about this job is there’s always something different happening. I spend my weekdays preparing a running order for whatever match I’m covering at the weekend, liaising with commentators…

A typical day for me looks like this. Up at 6am to get my girls ready for creche drop off, then it’s time for my 90min commute. I usually listen to an audio book or podcast in the car. Days can be pretty…
Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Alannah Jones
Alannah Jones works in the sports office with the GAA BEO team as part of her work placement in the University of Limerick.
I started in Nemeton on the 11th of January as part of a work placement with college. I’m a researcher on GAA BEO which means I do ‘taighde’ (research) for the commentators & analysts on the GAA BEO games. On Tuesday morning I send emails to PROs looking for details of team arrival times, manager interviews, what jerseys they will be wearing etc. for their team’s match coming up that weekend. Any other day of the week I’ll reply to emails & update our files on the team using what the county’s PRO…

I’m working as an analyst since 1999, my whole life, nearly!
It is important to be at the ground around 3 hours before throw-in. This allows for any mishaps you might have on the journey because after the opening titles roll, you have to be there!
