A Little About Me

I strive to be wild. 

I’ve been a waitress, nanny, civil servant and barrister, among other things.

I have lived in many places and countries — born under a wandering star.

I write memoir and poetry and capture photos of my beautiful Ireland. 

Over the years, I’ve appeared in local musicals, always in the chorus.

I was a volunteer during The Troubles, taking children from both sides of the divide on holidays and weekends in Donegal to help bridge perceived differences.

Later, I was a volunteer at a local children’s hospice.

I had an individual method of Irish dancing, which I readily performed at parties when influenced by one pint of Guinness too many. I dance much more elegantly in sobriety and now have the gift of remembering!

Sometimes, we have more than one mountain to climb. In 2019, I was diagnosed with Hereditary Amyloidosis (Thr60Ala) which originates from a fifteen-mile stretch of coastline in North West Donegal.

There are a few thousand of us with the condition worldwide where it wandered with the Irish Diaspora.

I’m an advocate for Amyloidosis Ireland.

And Partnership Development Officer with Northern Ireland Rare Disease Partnership.

And Committee Member of the Poetry and Spoken Word Group of the Society of Authors.
