As a freelance columnist and feature writer, I have been published in most of the Irish national press although my work most often features in the Irish Independent and the Irish Examiner.

I write opinion most often on family life or the role of women in society.

I also write features and travel pieces.

Employers Should Grow Up

Empowered Women


Some of my features…

When Home Is Where The Heart Is.

Ploughing On Despite Being Out of My Field

Love Letters to St Valentine

Basking in Bali

Other writing can be found From My Kitchen Table
