John Kennedy has been a friend of Conor since they met at an Irish Internet Association awards show about 10 years ago when they both won awards – Conor was best in Ireland at online marketing while John’s award was for best in technology journalism.
As they were both being from Meath, Conor got their photos in the Meath Chronicle for his mammy to see what he was up to in his new job at RaboDirect. John’s career has continued its upward trajectory and he is a real technology maker, mover and shaker in Ireland.
John Kennedy is an award-winning technology journalist. He joined Silicon Republic’s news service in 2002. He was recipient of the Irish Internet Association’s NetVisionary Technology Journalist Award 2005 and Siliconrepublic.com has been awarded ‘Best Technology Site’ at the Irish Web Awards seven times. In 2011 he received the David Manley Award commending him for his dedication to covering entrepreneurs.
