Hi. My name is Mairéad. I’m a mother of two currently living in the West of Ireland, enjoying maternity leave with my second baby.

I grew up an hour away from the house I’m in right now, and I’ve spent most of my adult life in Dublin. I’ve also lived in Africa (Mozambique), Thailand, and Germany for a brief period. I’ve travelled to countries in all continents, and I often dream of travelling to others. I practice and teach yoga but to pay the rent I work on health policy.

I am to be seen wandering the roads, beaches, forests and hills of the West of Ireland with a baby strapped to my front and a toddler occasionally holding my hand, but mostly running away from me towards a muddy puddle.
