I am an archaeologist who has spent the past two years working on excavations around Ireland. Prior to archaeology I worked as a tour guide in the UCD Classics museum giving me a background in translating academic writing into engaging information for non-specialists. I also hold a master’s degree in Classics giving me a strong research background exemplified in my 2016 thesis which explores ethnic identity in Hellenistic Cyprus. I finished up excavations in Dublin at the end of 2018 and returned to Sligo full time to pursue researching and writing about the heritage of Ireland's most underrated county!
