Eimear Considine Looking Forward To Juggling Work And Play For RWC 2019
If you have been anywhere near a television in recent weeks, chances are you will have seen adverts for Eir Sport’s coverage of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. If you have, then you will have seen the emergence of a new star in the form of ‘The Eimear-nator’.
Kilmihil native Eimear Considine is part of the coverage of the tournament being held in Japan next month and will be combining her full-time role as a secondary school teacher along with punditry duties and her own rapidly developing international rugby career.
She says making the ads for the coverage was an enjoyable experience but she’s not holding out hopes of packing in the day job just yet.
“It was great fun doing the recordings. There were a lot of takes so I don’t think my acting career will take off. It was good fun and they came out really well but it just makes you realise how much work goes into advertising and everything to do with recording them. It took two full days to do those two ads alone which were 30 seconds and of that you are on screen for probably 10 seconds so it was time consuming even though it was very quick.
