In The Press

Welcome to my writing portfolio and press page…a page containing an insight into other sites or publications which I write for and some places where my blog (and I) have been featured!

I have had articles published in many National Irish newspapers in addition to National Geographic Travel, Lonely Planet, Matador Network and The Huffington Post along with various other online publications. I also blog about Business Travel for the We Are The City website, which is aimed at Women in Business in London. I mainly write about travel and technology and if possible, a mix of the two!
