Thank you for signing up to our mailing list.
Having worked more than 20 years as an in–house lawyer for a variety of organisations in England, I have wide–ranging practical legal experience of many areas relevant to Irish in Britain. For example: fiduciary duties of trustees, recruiting and managing staff, governance and internal controls and data protection.
I have provided pro bono advice to Irish in Britain and to another charity. If Irish in Britain needs any specialist legal advice I would be able to arrange this cost– effectively as I understand the legal market.
The organisation does valuable work in supporting my fellow countrymen and women living in Britain which I am keen to support including projects such as the Cuimhne initiative. I am also proud of the significant contribution the Irish have made to cultural life in Britain so I am particularly interested in the organisation’s cultural strategy.
I was born and reared in the West of Ireland. I lived in Dublin for seven years while studying law in Trinity College later training as a solicitor with Arthur Cox.
I moved to the UK just over 25 years ago and have lived and/or worked in Cheltenham, Liverpool, London, Basingstoke, Reading and Oxford. I am also an active member of the Law Society’s Women Lawyers Division and particularly enjoy supporting women lawyers who are considering re–activating their legal career after a period of absence.
Although well settled in Britain with an English husband and two teenage children, I am proud of my Irish heritage and continue to maintain close contact with family and friends in Ireland.
