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.
