Ever since I began my science communication journey, I have been lucky enough to have the strong support of family, friends and the media. My science communication work has been widely covered in local and national media (which I’m very grateful for!)

Below you can have a look at some of the media, publications and radio stations where myself and my science communication/presenting/hosting work has been featured. There are also a couple of examples of nice things people have said about me and my work.

Aine Cronin-McCartney, events reviewer (November 2017)
I was the host of an event at Oh Yeah Music Centre where I interviewed Leah McFall (singer songwriter, the Voice UK)
“The evening was hosted by the very charming Emer Maguire, who made everyone feel immediately at ease as we settled in for the show. Emer Maguire’s completely natural sense of humour along with her charisma made the night thoroughly enjoyable”

“Wonderfully entertaining”

Open, honest, and beyond charming…With a sense of fun and humour, Emer’s performance is so engaging you feel like you’ve just made a new best friend.”

Huffington Post
“FameLab is the X-Factor for researchers – t
heir challenge: to bring science to life in 3 minute stage performances, sharing the wonder in their work in a snappy, sassy way which doesn’t lose the science, but is accessible to a wider public. And winner [and Queen’s University Belfast student] Emer Maguire certainly was sassy…We sometimes underestimate ourselves in this country. But when it comes to science we are world class.”
