Sinéad Bolger

Assistant Programme Manager, Intercultural & Refugee Programme

Having joined the Glencree Intercultural and Refugee Programme in 2020 as Programme Administrator, Sinéad was promoted to Assistant Programme Manager in 2023. In this role, Sinéad looks forward to continuing her work in supporting the peacebuilding aims of Glencree and the ongoing development of the Intercultural and Refugee Programme whilst working interculturally and with communities directly affected by migration and displacement.

Currently undertaking an MA in Race, Migration & Decolonial Studies at UCD, Sinéad's background as a facilitator and carer have supported her experiences in working interculturally and directly with people who are displaced. Prior to joining Glencree, she worked as a Coordinator in a refugee camp in Athens, Greece from 2016 to 2018. She then moved to Roscommon to work as a shift leader in the emergency, reception and orientation centre for programme refugees from Syria and Iraq. Her background in creative facilitation means that she was able to run projects working closely with women. Sinéad’s knowledge of Arabic, learnt while in Palestine, helped ease communication with the Syrian and Iraqi refugees.
