Pastimes, hobbies & interests
I enjoy the gym and keeping fit. Walking my dog, Bainne, on the beach in the morning. Reading fact books and writing essays for publication. I live to laugh and enjoy good conversation. I loved teaching and may do some more in the future. I love art and discussing different people's thoughts and perspectives. Big fan of moves, especially good thrillers that keep you guessing. I would like to travel more in the future, to Italy to feast on the unparalleled art collections and glorious churches, and farther afield too.
How do you like to spend your free time
Doing the above. Family is very important to be and I do my bit in caring for my mum. She has chickens and lot of them! It can be hard work but they are great characters and tremendous fun. I don't follow any teams. Instead I visit galleries and enjoy learning about history through looking at real artefacts. A nice evening with few pints and a local band, for me, is a great night out. I also love stand up comedy.
Your top personality traits/special talents
Intelligent, caring, sensitive, kind. I will make stand and have the courage of my convictions.
Your not so top personality traits
I get cocky sometimes.
Your attributes/core values/what are you passionate about?
I am passionate about social justice. I think the world financial system has failed and that we all deserve something better. I believe the spirit continues after death but do not think that any one religion has all the answers. I love my work and get a feeling of exhilaration when I have really helped someone. I do not worship money. I could amass it if I wanted to but love my family and real happiness cannot be synthesized. Like Dorothy, I just want to click my heels and be home. That is where love resides, the home in myself, my mother's house, and my own little house I have recently done up in Wexford. Once an empty shell, it is now a beautiful home.

I'd like to learn how to do a somersault and a good karate roundhouse kick.
