Padraig Costello


Pádraig Costello, Director of the Training and Professional Writing Departments, has been working in language training and translation for the past three years. His strong financial and business background comes from ten years of experience in the Irish public service, including postings in the Departments of Finance, Justice, the Environment and Agriculture, where he gained essential knowledge and practice in management, communication, document writing and editing.

His formative years were spent in University College, Dublin (U.C.D.) where he read history and politics as an undergraduate and then went on to successfully complete a Master’s degree in political theory. Putting theory into practice he was strongly involved in the university societies, holding committee posts during his time there. This was followed up by four years of teaching political science and theory to university students, which led him to his career in public administration. He brings a firm understanding of real life business to training.
