Elaine went back to education as a mature student to study a BA Hons in Sustainable Rural Development, graduating from the Tipperary Institute (now TUS) in 2009. Following graduation, she completed a MSc in Biodiversity and Conservation in the University of Leeds and subsequently moved to the Outer Hebrides to take up a role as a development officer for the Isle of North Uist. Elaine worked under the Scottish Highland and Island Enterprise programme to develop fragile communities, embracing island living for the duration of the project and for two years focused her efforts on developing opportunities that created a lasting impact in the long-term economic development of the Outer Hebrides.

In 2012 Elaine moved to the North East of Scotland where she continued her work within the economic development unit of Aberdeenshire Council, managing the rural partnerships initiative and focused on projects such as tourism, food and building community networks. Due to an increase in the development of wind energy projects in the region, Elaine supported communities and the council to create guidance and templates for local groups when seeking to access community benefit funding.

In her own time Elaine started and ran a micro crowd funding dinner for five years named Aberdeen Soup which was based on the Detroit Soup model. She is still supporting new SOUP startups and has spoken at Soup events in the UK, Europe and the US. Due to her work on micro granting and SOUP, Elaine supported University groups in both Aberdeen University and RGU to engage students in social enterprise and social entrepreneurship, becoming a regular speaker at University events.

In 2016 Elaine retrained as a Business and Economics Teacher in the University of Aberdeen, earning a PGDE in Secondary Education. In 2020 Elaine moved to Gordonstoun School where she taught Business and Economics and led the BTec in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, bringing her skills in social enterprise and social entrepreneurship to successfully deliver a unique programme within the school. In 2021 under her guidance the Young Enterprise Team in Gordonstoun went on to become overall winners in the National Final and in 2022 again winning many prizes in the sustainability and innovations categories for their work in ethical fashion.

In 2023 Elaine completed her Masters in Education in Professional Practice and Reflective Learning and has since become a part of the DU team based in Thurles working on a range of projects.

Gloria is based in the Thurles campus, working as project support officer with the Development Unit.

A native of the Burren in Co Clare, Gloria has a proven track record and background in rural development, having received an MA from University of Galway in Community Development (2001) and a BA from University of Cork in Social Science (1999).

Gloria brings a wealth of experience from 20 years working on the EU LEADER programme but also on wider rural development, sustainable development and community and enterprise engagement.

Gloria has worked for 20 years in the community and voluntary sector co-ordinating the EU LEADER Rural Development Programme in Clare. She has worked extensively with enterprises, community groups, farmers, farm families, individuals, networks and social enterprises. Coordinating programmes of significant public funding investment and multiple project types is a particular skill which Gloria has honed, covering themes such as economic development including tourism destinations and market towns, community and youth development and environmental development including renewables and biodiversity. Sourcing co-financing for projects through other public and private sources including philanthropy was a regular aspect of the role. Projects which Gloria worked on directly include training programmes, feasibility studies, network establishment and development, community planning, business planning along with capital projects.

In addition to her LEADER role, Gloria worked on the Clare Wood Energy Project from 2004 – 2007. The project aimed to create a market for farm forestry first thinning, in association with Teagasc and funded through the Forest Service. As a direct consequence of the project, a number of large biomass boilers were installed in Clare, which created the intended local market. Without a local market, the thinning of privately owned, usually small scale forestry plantations was neither financially viable nor environmentally sustainable. The Clare Timber Producers Group continues to operate in Clare as a sustainable legacy of that project. Gloria is an advocate for community led local development (CLLD) and believes strongly in supporting actors in the local economy to add value and to create a sustainable local eco system.

Whilst working for Clare Local Development Company, Gloria also performed the role of Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) mentor for Co Clare (2020-2021), working as part of a team of mentors in the mid-west, growing the number of communities registered with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) on the programme and supporting communities on a journey of mobilisation and awareness to energy master planning and potentially renewable energy generation.

Gloria is currently working on BIMzeED, BusLeague, GUPP, Construction Blueprint and BusGoCircular.

  • Community engagement
