Aoife Dungan, Marketing and Communications Manager

Aoife joined the team in May 2019 and oversees the communications strategy for PPLI and the Languages Connect awareness raising campaign, managing a wide variety of projects, events and media promoting the work of PPLI.

Her interest in languages began early, starting German classes at nine years old. Picking up French at secondary school, she went on to study International Marketing and Languages at DCU and immensely enjoyed studying and working in Germany and France during college. After starting her career at IDA Ireland, she moved to New Zealand where she worked with an engineering firm managing their French-speaking clients in far-flung places like New Caledonia, Guadeloupe & Haiti. Having returned from her travels, she undertook a Masters in Strategic Management at DIT. Prior to PPLI she managed marketing campaigns across Europe as International Brand Manager with Aer Lingus. She has a keen interest in other cultures and travel and has always seen huge benefits from foreign language learning.
