About Emily ...

I have been telling stories since I was very small.  I grew up believing there were fairies in the forest, selkies in the sea and banshees at the bainis.   As the child of Irish parents, I have a rich background in folk tales, myths, ballads and poems, and a fascination with the ancient art of oral storytelling.


I have been performing to children and adults at Festivals, community events, private functions and for educational projects for eight years. Everyone has a story to tell and I love sharing stories and learning from their wisdom.



Now for the REALLY important stuff -  I do a pretty good Edith Piaf impersonation; I am dreadful on the ukulele but okay on the guitar; I am wife to a wonderful husband and mother to a wonderful son.

I love brussel sprouts but hate bananas.
