Adults, Children, Festivals, Special Needs


Full time and is prepared to travel nationally and internationally.


I have a wide repertoire of Irish and Scottish myths, legends and folktales. I also tell a lot of environmental tales in forests and round campfires and regularly perform at eco festivals and sustainability fairs.

Background experience:

I have lived and performed at the Findhorn Foundation community in Scotland and at the Emerson Living and Learning Community in Sussex but am now based back in my native Co. Antrim, where I have been telling and performing in a wide variety of community contexts for the past 5 years.

I also perform a show called Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary Woman, based on the story of the Pirate Queen, Grainne O’Malley, The Boyne- A River in Time, tales set in the Boyne Valley and Flaming Brigid, a collection of Brigid stories.

I am a member of the Dalriada Legends, a group of local storytellers who regularly organise and perform at events in Co. Antrim and beyond.
