Her first contact with the Holy Family was through a Sister who happened to be home on holidays from France. From then on many opportunities came her way. Having qualified as a teacher and a youth leader in England she spend some years working with young people in the Merseyside area.
Next she moved to Dublin, first to Stillorgan Road, then to Donaghmede and Drumcondra. While in Dublin she was involved in Vocation ministry and in administration for her Order. From Dublin she went overseas to Washington DC where she did a Pastoral Ministry Course. After a year in USA she came to Newbridge and since 1998 she has been part of the Parish team.
