Marie Smyth is passionate, driven and has more than a decade of experience in the travel and hospitality industry.
While attending The Dublin institute of Technology, Marie began her career in 2002, within the travel and airline industry. Starting as an administrative assistant, Marie moved through the ranks, ultimately becoming the company’s marketing Manager. After completing a BA, a Masters in Tourism Management was undertaken with a move into hotels.
Shortly afterwards, an opportunity in Croke Park presented itself. Being an avid GAA fan this was an easy move and Marie became the Business Development Manager for Premium seats in the stadium. After 3 years, she made the move to the Suite and Hospitality Manager, while still working closely with the stadium's Premium team.
Her favourite thing about working for Croke Park is how the Management team is genuinely interested in taking care of their staff, allowing for constant development a growth. Additionally, and equally, the dedication of the staff to making the Croke Park experience one of the best in the world, drives Marie forward to develop both the product offering and also the skills she brings to the role.
No two days in Croke Park are the same and every day is a learning opportunity.
