Her six shows: “Oscar and the Sphinx,” “ Voices of Ireland,” “Seven Ages” “The Harp that Once,” "Dauntless and Daring ~Women of the Gael" and "Ladies Who Lunch" have been extremely successful at Festivals, in the Great Irish Houses, for Irish Societies abroad, Cultural Associations and at organised functions.
The shows can provide a full evening's entertainment or can be shortened to one hour or less duration
if required. All the shows travel easily as there are only two people involved.
