Journalist, Broadcaster & Presenter
Gráinne Seoige is an award winning broadcaster, journalist and highly experienced television presenter. The only Irish TV personality to have worked across all four of Ireland’s television stations – TG4, TV3, RTÉ 1 and RTÉ 2 as well as launch anchor for Sky News Ireland – Gráinne produced and presented the highly acclaimed documentary programme Meanapás: Meon Nua which aired on TG4 November 2, 2022.
As part of her documentary Gráinne explored the topic of menopause and how it has been handled, both historically and currently, in Ireland.
Exploring the various challenges associated with perimenopause and menopause Gráinne met with women across the country to discuss their personal experiences and struggles around the issue. Armed with what she had learned Gráinne met with Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly to discuss the lack of information and support, advocating for a National Menopause Policy to be launched.
Meanapás: Meon Nua was received to critical acclaim and proved to be a ground breaking vehicle to debunk menopause for Irish women and bring the issue out of the shadows into the public arena.
