Heritage Week Project Manager

Brief biography

I have worked as National Heritage Week Project Manager for the Heritage Council since February 2015.  My role is to manage and develop this annual celebration of Ireland’s natural, built and cultural heritage. 

Previous to that I was Marketing Manager for two of Ireland’s most successful festivals; St. Patrick’s Festival and Kilkenny Arts Festival.  I have a degree in Ancient History, Archaeology and Italian from Trinity College Dublin.

I relish a challenge, particularly using limited resources to solve problems. While I mainly working independently, I enjoy joining other cultural professionals to share ideas and consider new perspectives.
