Hi, I’m Val Robus, I’m a photographer, social media manager and writer.
I’m passionate about Sligo and Ireland. I’m also very interested in travel, adventures, food, exploring and events for both tourists and locals to enjoy. In 2018 I co-founded a website called Sligo Hub which is now under new ownership since January 2021.
I work at Momentum (educate and innovate), based in Leitrim. Our team works on a wide variety of projects including Erasmus+ projects.
I’m passionate about mental health awareness and have been a guest of Claire Byrne Live.
I have a fortnightly show on Ballina Community Radio FM and I’m also on the Board of Trustees for the Sligo Volunteer Centre.
I’ve recently discovered a love of art and enjoy painting.
