Kennedy Analysis was founded in 2016 by Emma Kennedy.
Emma Kennedy’s background is in carrying out forensic analysis of companies and projects – she was a corporate lawyer at Clifford Chance, one of London's biggest law firms, and subsequently worked in finance in London at a major global bank.
Emma Kennedy first heard about the Shannon Project because the proposed pipeline crosses her husband's family farm. Despite concerns that her involvement in challenging the project might prove detrimental to them personally regarding the way that the proposed pipeline will impact their farm, Emma Kennedy has pursued this matter out of principle.
The analysis work for the Shannon Project has been produced pro bono, in the public interest: the team that produced the Kennedy Analysis of the Shannon Project and the Kennedy Analysis of Dublin’s Leakage have all worked on an unpaid basis in their free time because the Shannon Project is quite simply wrong.
