‘Find out what you like doing best, and get someone to pay you for doing it’ – DJ, presenter and writer Tara Stewart
12th Jun 2018
If ever there was an embodiment of a ‘Dublin cool girl’, Tara Stewart definitely has it down (even though she was born in Australia). Since visiting Ireland in 2011 and deciding it was the place for her, Tara has made a huge mark on the Irish music scene.
Between being the showbiz reporter for RTÉ 2FM , writing for Dublin-based creative music magazine District and DJ’ing at the coolest spots in the city, her time is taken up by showcasing great Irish creative talent, including her own. Her quick immersion into Irish life may be down to her dad being from Belfast, but Tara is carving her own Dublin legacy, with chunky gold hoop earrings in tow.
