Jennifer is a keen traveler, in her youth where Jennifer spent time in India and Asia before she finally settled down to study. As a mature student she studied History, Anthropology and Philosophy. For the first few years after her studies she worked as an Archaeologist on rescue projects uncovering artifacts and sites from neolithic times to the 19th century. A change of career lead her to specialize in Social Care where she began work with the UN providing vital services for refugees from vulnerable countries for several years. A further change turned her path once more to where she is now. Jennifer loves to bring people through the changing fertile lands of the countryside as well as the vibrant hustle and bustle of the cities. Her true passion is to blend the old and the new, combining her historical background with the social and cultural life of Ireland as she weaves tales about places, spaces and the past. You might even find her re-telling the old stories of great High-Kings, powerful Druids, devilish spirits and the mighty warriors.
Catherine’s education and life experiences are steeped in Irish food culture, history and the arts. She is the first of six people to graduate in six hundred years from the island with a degree in Law and the Irish (Gaelic) language. While working in that field, she translated the Children’s Act into the Irish language and was acknowledged in a book on the Irish language version of the constitution. She is a social entrepreneur having founded a dance organisation at university level that is now in its 17th year. It has given hundreds of people the opportunity to take up or to continue dancing at a high level. She credits her close knit mother’s family and her ancestors from the Tipperary mountains for her love of Irish mythology, dance, nature and storytelling. She is a Fáilte Ireland qualified tour guide and loves to interact with newcomers to Ireland through her own uniquely developed narrative. Having just finished a Masters in wellbeing psychology, she is well placed to look after yours! Céad míle fáilte romhaibh go hEireann.
