Corporate Affairs Manager
Grangegorman Development Agency
Nora has worked in the public and regulatory sector in Ireland and the UK for over 25 years in the areas of urban regeneration, housing, health and education. She also worked with Special Olympics Ireland in co-ordinating and managing events and working with host towns for the Special Olympics World Games in 2003.
Today, Nora is Corporate Affairs Manager and a member of the Senior Management Team at the Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA). The Agency is responsible for the redevelopment of the former St. Brendan's Hospital grounds in Dublin’s north inner city into a world-class integrated campus for Technological University Dublin (formerly DIT), the Health Service Executive, and the local community.
Nora supports the delivery of the GDA’s goal to create a vibrant new city quarter with a diverse mix of uses, in a way that is sensitive to the context of the Grangegorman site, its surrounding neighbourhoods and the existing community. Central to her role is her work with The Grangegorman Learning and Labour Forum, the Grangegorman Strategic Art Project, and more recently with the Grangegorman Histories Project. She is also a member of the Steering Group of the Grangegorman Area Based Childhood (ABC) Programme, which aims to improve outcomes for children, particularly those aged 0-6.
