Brannockstown designer in Channel 4 show

Nessa Doran O'Reilly from Brannockstown will be appearing in a new Channel 4 show at 4pm today (Monday), writes Julie O'Donoghue. The show is presented by Gok Wan and is about filling your house with stuff for free.

Nessa has an MA in furniture design and is currently based in Bristol in the UK. She is extremely talented. Her parents are Sheila and Senan and Nessa went to school in CPC. Her brother Scott is also a talented cabinet maker.

In the series, Gok Wan and a team of experts invite families to embrace upcycling. They meet families who are desperate to give their home a makeover, but are feeling the pinch and in need of a micro budget, of next to nothing at all!

From bedroom changes, kitchen do-overs, living room spruce ups and whole house transformations, Gok will be using his sense of style to show how to achieve a dramatic overhaul, whether it be sourcing an entire kitchen (sink included!) or a new king-size bed, without breaking the piggy bank.

Working with upcyclers and master craftspeople ‘Fill Your House for Free’ will also look at completed projects for inspiration, and show how to avoid waste to take properties from shabby to chic on a thoroughly thrifty budget.
