Musician and Gaeilgeoir Doireann Ni Ghlacain a new member of the presenting team FleadhTV on TG4, which broadcasts from year Cheoil in Drogheda.

What is the most important lesson about money his career as a broadcaster has taught you?

Have the confidence to negotiate a better cost. I failed for now, but I hope that any day now I will be giving away his million dollars contract.

What is the most expensive place you have ever visited?

Probably pubs in Dublin’s city centre. Prices never cease to amaze me. I recently paid €7 for a pint bottle of cider. I had a stopover in Dubai in June this year and paid €10 for a Cup of fruit. I’m not going back.

What’s the best advice you ever had about money?

To have a healthy disrespect for money. I’m not driven by money. Everything I do, I do because I love him. Contentment is wealth.

In addition to real estate that the most expensive thing you ever bought?

My clunker of a car. It really is not expensive, but it works like a dream and is fantastic on petrol. Best investment I ever made.

What was your worst job?

I was a waitress for a year ago when I went to College. I was shocked at how badly the staff were treated and so I promised myself I would never work in such an environment again.

What was your biggest financial mistake?

Buying too much is Jager-bombs on my map, and regretting it the next morning. This is a common occurrence, and what I’m trying to work on. I’m all about self-improvement.

What was your best financial murder?

I once backed a winner at Galway races and lived like a Queen for a day. In addition, I have yet to make one, so any advice would be warmly received.

Are you better off than your parents?

I am full-time grad student, so I don’t, no. My parents are very happy in life, and if I become as happy as they are I don’t think I’ll be too worried about the money side of things.

If you won the euromillions what would you do with the money?

To buy a house locally in Clontarf and give the rest of it. Having too much money wouldn’t suit me.

If you could create your own Euro note, what image would you put on it?

Tommy Potts, the great Dublin player the violin and my hero.

iTunes or Spotify?

iTunes. Purely for podcasts, as I am addicted.

Which is the last thing you bought online?

Clothes, clothes and clothes.

You ever done insurance?

No, I’m a young driver, my insurance is bad enough as it is, I never claim it. And I don’t pretend to be someone else, if I could help him – it attracts bad karma.

Would you buy property now?

It would be a firm “no”. I’m 24, so the idea of a mortgage is absolutely horrific.

Did you ever bargain?

I’m a fantastic haggler, this is one of my best qualities. I learned that from my Granny.

What are the three things you couldn’t do without if you were to tighten their belts?

The only real thing I find it difficult to reduce the cost of food. I am very lenient in this regard.
