Elaine McCahill, Editor-at-Large of Trinity News 2012/’13, has been elected Editor of Trinity News for the 2013/’14 year and 60th volume.
Elaine has previously edited TCD Miscellany (2011/’12) and also served as Secretary on this year’s Publications committee.
She met the election criteria, having previously served in a position in a Publication in Trinity and being a current student, and was the only applicant by the deadline. Under such circumstances she is elected to the position barring a veto from the senior editorial staff of Trinity News 2012/’13, which she did not receive.
As this year’s editor I wish Elaine the very best of luck on her election. She brings with her great experience of publications and journalism in Trinity and a close proximity to this year’s Trinity News production process, which is an invaluable asset for the position.
Elaine assumes editorship of Ireland’s oldest student newspaper on the occasion of its 60th volume and is a fitting custodian for the position.
