I am a freelance writer and broadcaster  in Dublin, Ireland.

I am mother to three daughters, all adults, one of whom is living in Perth WA, where I also have two grandchildren. I also live with four cats, two occasional cats, and have foxes who come visit most nights. I currently have a husband –  Paul Sherwood, who is a freelance photographer.

I love current affairs, good coffee, dolphins, a good book, my friends and owls… in no particular order.  I am partial to a Dingle Gin and Tonic.

I am in my 6th decade on the planet and I am only getting started!

  1. Hello Barbara, I enjoyed your piece in the Indepndent. We may have met @Alsheimers.
    Having been schooled in a Co-Educational School in NI and our two sons also I enjoyed working for over 100 women in Barnardos. Indeed my only contribution was to fix the smell in the Fridge. They were highly regarded by Council and by Director of Child Care. The latter enjoyed singly each Manager at meetings for some error.
    Child Care is seen as a cost/expenditure item rather than an investment.
    I intoduced the best Curriculum to Ireland. It is the Hgh/Scope Currculum shown by evidence from the Classic ‘Perry Preshool Project’ to have a return of $1 invested over twenty years to $13 return.
    I invested £IR 1 million over 10 years challeging estates.
    Sadly the Committee is going for cheap option and paying Child Care Workers a Min., Wage
