Shut The Front Door with Sean Lemass

15th Jul 2020

Today we are speaking to Sean Lemass, founder and MD of SDL Exhibitions, one of Ireland’s leading event organisers for over 40 years. Their nationally recognised events include The Ideal Home Show and The Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show.

As you may have gathered from his name, Sean hails from a political family and was the first grandchild of Sean F Lemass, Taoiseach from 1959 to 1966, and a leader who is widely regarded as a father of modern Ireland. Sean’s own father and mother were also members of the Irish Parliament, with his mother, Eileen Lemass, later become a MEP from 1984-1989.

Sean is a keen sailor and participated in yacht racing and cruising, in both Irish waters and the Mediterranean. Wife to Ruth, father of 2 and grandfather to 3, I’m delighted to welcome Sean to Shut the Front Door today.
