From losing loved ones in Omagh bomb to her award-winning career in architecture world

By Lisa Smyth

An award-winning architect has described overcoming the loss of loved ones in the Omagh bomb - as well as setbacks in her primary education - on her road to success.

Johann Muldoon, a director of Manor Architects in Moneymore, Co Londonderry, told the Business Telegraph that her grandfather died in the dissident republican bombing of 1998, in which a total of 29 people lost their lives.

The mother-of-two, who is due to have her third child, also describes difficulties in her early education exacerbated by hearing loss after suffering from German measles.

But Ms Muldoon, who was raised in Castlederg, reveals that she displayed business acumen from a young age, and made a £25 profit on the sale of her home-made First Communion dress.

Ms Muldoon will speak at the Ulster Bank Business Boost event at the Glenavon Hotel in Cookstown, Co Tyrone today.
