Filmmakers, scientists, and technology leaders based in Ireland feature in this year's Forbes 30 Under 30 - Europe list. 

The annual list, Forbes says, spotlights "the latest class of young disruptors and changemakers who are redefining their respective fields."

In the Entertainment category, Yasmine 'Jazzy' Byrne, Alisha Weir, and Ross White and Tom Berkeley were featured.

Thanks to her 2023 hit song "Giving Me," Dublin native Jazzy became the first female artist in more than 14 years to have a No. 1 song in Ireland, and the first Irish woman to reach No. 1 on Spotify with more than 130 million streams.

At 14 years old, Dublin native Weir is the youngest person on the Forbes 30 Under 30 - Europe list this year. She starred in 2022's "Matilda: The Musical," with Forbes praising her for "holding her own against acting royalty like Emma Thompson and Andrea Riseboroug."

Belfast-based filmmakers Ross and Berkeley were hailed for their "unprecedented triple win" after they scooped an Oscar, a BAFTA, and an IFTA for their short film "An Irish Goodbye."

In the Retail and E-Commerce category, Hope Macaulay was profiled for "her eponymous brand which now employs 20 knitters across Northern Ireland hand-making cardigans, bags and more in a unique needle-free method."

In the Science and Healthcare category, Robbie Scott and Cian Donovan were highlighted as co-founders of Akara Robotics, whose flagship product, a disinfection robot, decontaminates rooms up to 20 times faster than a human cleaner and is currently being used in six hospitals around the world.

Oisín McGrath, who co-founded Galenband, also got a nod in the Science and Healthcare category. His startup, " which is combining an upper-arm band with AI algorithms to monitor patients for the most common deadly heart rhythm abnormality," has raised $8.8 million in funding, mostly from Enterprise Ireland, to conduct clinical trials and apply for regulatory clearance.

In the Social Impact group, Dale Whelehan was featured for his Dublin-based nonprofit 4 Day Week Global, which is focused on introducing four-day workweeks to European corporations. 

Dublin-based Sanjay Abraham was highlighted in the Technology group of this year's list as the co-founder of Xpress Health, a healthcare staffing platform.

Also in the Technology category are Luke Mackey, Patrick O'Boyle, and Deepak Baliga, the co-founders of the Dublin-based startup Kota, which enables companies to set up, manage and automate benefit processes.
