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 (especially teenagers), the role of women (in the home and in society), animals (from pets to o


ur 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.

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.
