Round­wood pair meet Joanne

Bray People - - NEWS - DEB­O­RAH COLE­MAN

JOANNE and Mark Burke from Round­wood met Ire­land’s new­est movie star, Joanne O’Rior­dan, who was guest of hon­our at a Top Se­cu­rity client evening.

Her ‘No Limbs No Lim­its’ doc­u­men­tary also opened on Ir­ish cin­ema screens over the weekend.

At the event, Joanne spoke to the au­di­ence about the mak­ing of her doc­u­men­tary and the ro­bot built for her by Trin­ity Col­lege en­gi­neers in re­sponse to the chal­lenge she laid down to the tech com­mu­nity at the United Na­tions ITU con­fer­ence in April 2012.

Joanne said, ‘ I was de­lighted to be asked to come to this event.

‘It was a huge hon­our for me to get the in­vite and I'm very ex­cited to talk about my life and the doc­u­men­tary. I en­joyed film­ing the doc­u­men­tary all round, but maybe the early morn­ings were a bit of a pain. I hope that ev­ery­one goes out and sees it and I hope they feel in­spired by it.’
