Castlebar woman Emer McCormack featured on last night’s episode of the popular reality TV show The Apprentice.
Head of Marketing at Just-Eat.ie, Emer set the task for the remaining candidates.
Among them is Crossmolina man Noel Rowland who is one of five remaining candidates after last night’s cull. Foxford’s Louise O’Hara was ‘fired’ a number of weeks ago.
In last night’s episode, the six remaining candidates were tasked with creating a TV ad for Just-Eat.ie, a well-known food ordering website.
Although both teams’ ads failed to hit the mark, team Spirit emerged as winners and project manager of team Zest, Cork restaurant owner Sandra was fired by the show’s central character, Bill Cullen.
Speaking after seeing both ads, Emer McCormack was far from impressed.
“Choosing the winning team was a difficult decision as both ads were abysmal,” she said. “It was quite clear that neither team understood the messages we were trying to get across and team Spirit won by the skin of their teeth. I don’t think that Sandra deserved to go last night. There are definitely weaker candidates than her still in the race.”
Emer McCormack has attended Athlone IT, Ballyfermot College of Further Education and DCU where she studied for a Master of Business Studies. She also has a degree in Media Production, and, having had a big interest in radio since her student days, she currently presents her own show on www.liveireland.com.
Emer also has a strong interest in sport. She played women’s rugby for Connacht and has won an All-Ireland football title with Athlone IT.
Emer was a sergeant in the Order of Malta in Castlebar for a number of years and won a ‘Youth of the Year’ award in 2000 for all her community involvement.
