Very limited, but as a young student was good. Did monologues in feiseanna as a teenager. Did drama exams during the same period. Have been a singing/music teacher and singer all my working life, so performance doesn't phase me. Would love to have a go at acting again.

I finished my first film 'Remembering Yesterday,' in which I played the female lead, in March 2014.

I have been accepted on a voice over website in the US, and the demos for this are on my profile now.

More recently I played the role of a vulnerable older person in a training video produced by 'One Productions' in Dublin.

In August 2014 I took part in a music video for the RTE2 programme Music inc., an experience which I enjoyed very much.

In June 2012 retired from a second level teaching job in which I taught academic and practical music. This included being choir director, running a small orchestra, musically directing a musical show almost every year as well as teaching music courses for the state exams.
As well as my class teaching qualifications I have a diploma in solo singing teaching.
My voice, in spite of the fact that I am recently retired, sounds young for its age. It won prizes in festivals when I was in my 20's and has been used gently ever since....singing at weddings etc.and as cantor in my local church. I have also sung solo in the choir of which I am a member and in recital.
