Twenty years – that’s how long I’ve been working as a freelance writer; creating fresh, informative, and engaging feature articles, opinion pieces, personal columns, and copy for media and commercial clients.
I write in English and Irish about health and wellbeing; food, nutrition, and how we eat now; social and women’s issues; the environment; parenting and relationships; lifestyle; and the Irish language.
I have a particular interest in some of these topics. I used to run my own award-winning café, which gave me an insider’s knowledge of the food sector as well as an abiding interest in all things food.
As a native Irish speaker, I am all too aware of the challenges facing minority languages.
My work has been published in publications such as The Irish Examiner, The Irish Times, The Sunday Times, and Irish America.
I have had a popular bilingual column in the Irish Post newspaper since 2008.
I write advertorial too, tailoring my tone to suit my clients. My work in this sector is as varied as my journalism. I’ve worked with NewsCred, the world’s leading enterprise content marketing company, on campaigns for major brands such as Coca-Cola. I’ve created marketing emails and website copy for travel agencies. And I write all sorts of pieces for my local newspaper, Kerry’s Eye, ranging from company profiles to 20-page pull-out supplements celebrating the best food and drink experiences in the region.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve built up long-term relationships with editors and clients who trust the standard of my work. Whether they commission me to write an article about the damaging effects of diet culture or a blog post chronicling the adventure’s of a tour guide in Japan, they know that I will deliver accurate and entertaining copy to their specific brief and to their set deadline.
