I love to talk and have opinions on most things, from politics to family; from spirituality to books and beyond.

My personal areas of interest are family life, the role of women (in the home and in society), animals (from pets to our wonderful urban wildlife), positive ageing (especially for women),  book reviews and social media (I am a self confessed twitter addict).


I do a weekly slot on Moncrieff on Newstalk every Monday called So You Think You’re An Adult… a kind of agony aunt with an edge along with with agony uncle, Declan Buckley, aka Shirley Temple Bar.

I also contribute regularly to various programmes on Newstalk along with a variety of other talk radio programmes across all stations.

I also contribute to RTE Radio One and various local radio stations.

For three years I presented my own weekly women’s hour programme called The Hen House on Dublin South FM.


I am a very regular panellist on TV3’s  Elaine (previously Midday) and I also occasionally contribute to TV3’s Tonight Show and Ireland AM.  I also occasionally pop up on RTE One’s Today Show and Claire Byrne Live.
