I was born in Kenmare and going home from school years ago one could not miss the visitors to our area, they would go to a lake to fish, sit and have a picnic and even start painting the lake Trees and Mountain, ,
so on leaving school it was natural to get involved some where in looking after visitors, their interest in our area made us more interested in our beautiful natural Environment and the 'Ring of Kerry' which is world famous of which Kenmare is the center, also Kenmare 3000 year old stone circle, was it for blood offerings- celebration or getting in touch with the cosmos?
Danniel O'Connell; how did he become so famous even though it took him 6 days to get to Dublin and inspire the People.
Skelligs; Why did monks have to flee to a rocky island and live there for 400 years?
I have been active in welcoming visitors in various ways in Kenmare and started my own B&B with my husband Pat,
Those days they come from more far afield about ten years ago it was mostly from the USA and last year it was Germany and Australia. I have a great understanding of people who want to get away from it all, I love travel which I do in off season my favorite is Switzerland and Cruises which gives me the chance to see several places,
I have spent 20 years in 'Civil defence' which assist people who get hurt in the sports field or the many cross country events, I have been Golfing for a few years too but as my handycap has not improved I have given it a rest, I'am a member of Kenmare bridge club as well as taking part in other card games, and of course I enjoy family life.
