Shane’s interest in television grew from a very young age and loved following the process of television and film production having done work experience in RTE when he was still in secondary school. In college, a chance encounter and a missed train led him to land two guest slots on RTE’s Beat Box television programme with Ian Dempsey. We still have the tapes somewhere!! Shane still loves touring studios to watch how tv shows are made.
