Biography

I am the Librarian of King’s Inns, with responsibility for the current legal collection – print and electronic, as well as an historical collection which contains works dating back to the 15th century. King’s Inns is the sole provider of the Barrister-at-Law degree in Ireland, as well as providing various other legal educational courses. Meeting the information needs of the students is our primary focus, alongside maintaining the heritage collection for future generations. I qualified and practised as a solicitor before re-qualifying as a Librarian, and worked for the Bar of Ireland for almost ten years before moving to King’s Inns in 2014.

Interesting fact: Labhraím Gaeilge. I’m an adult literacy tutor and work one to one with adults helping them to improve their literacy skills.
