Observe the MAMs

So this happened last week. Mothers Artists Makers presented our devised theatre piece in response to the play Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching towards the Somme by Frank McGuinness. Nearly 20 mother/artists on stage exploring the battleground of motherhood. The devising as well as the performing was experimental in that we attempted to do it...

Episode 8

We’re back with a bang. Today’s episode is the Facebook Live conversation I recorded with Dr. Cara Augustenborg on the 31st of August. I was holding off releasing the podcast because Cara was a finalist in the Littlewood Ireland Blog awards in the Current Affairs category and I kind of had a feeling she might...

Reflection

So I didn’t make the finalist stage of the blog awards which I actually feel rather disappointed by, if I’m honest. It was one of those things when making the long list and the short list were utterly unexpected. You get your hopes up, you start to imagine ‘what if’.  I’ve been on this merry...

You know the way….

You know the way you write a big long blog post on the day you’re supposed to be packing to return home from the holidays and you know the way you lose the whole freaking blog post and can’t get back to it until almost a week later? That! I was trying to multi task...

Everyone needs a little magic

I have listened to some juicy, inspirational podcasts recently and thought I’d take little time to share them with you, seeing as this blog is supposed to be all about inspiration, right? First up, I’m so excited that Liz Gilbert has started up her Magic Lessons again. For those of you who don’t know her,...

And breathe…

Despite all the hectic running around oganising and packing for a family of five, which I hate, I do love it when we get here and I begin to unwind.  I posted a photo on my Instagram account of the stack of books I’ve taken with me that I hope to peruse since I’m switching...

Well now…

How lovely to open an email with some good news! The blog has been added to the long list for the Littlewoods Ireland Blog Awards 2016 in the category Arts & Culture. I’m absolutely delighted as I’m a relative newcomer to the scene. I’m also thrilled to have been given a list of great blog...

Tumbleweed

Yes it has been rather quiet round here lately. Kids are off school for the summer holidays, I’ve been doing edits on my novel so my agent can send it out to publishers next month (pinch me!). I’ve just done my first Facebook Live broadcast which you can find on the Strut and Bellow page...

Episode 7

I had such fun chatting to my guest Susan Bracken for this episode. We met on a workshop with Annie Ryan’s Corn Exchange Theatre Company and found we had a lot in common. We’re both actresses who started out in London, and who have moved back to Dublin only to find it’s like starting all...
