I grew up in Sligo overlooking the Atlantic, so it’s a thrill to return home to live beside the ocean after several years in Toronto. I adore being out in the hills anywhere in Ireland. I bought my first pair of hiking boots when I was a student, and tried them out in the Wicklow Mountains. I was hooked. I spent many an autumn day tramping the mountains and trails around Sligo and Leitrim, and think that there is no better feeling than being so close to nature. I am also lucky enough to have trekked in more far-flung parts of the globe, including the stunning Annapurna Trail in Nepal and the Inca Trail in Peru.
Favourite Place to Play
I have a soft spot for Scotland, so much so that myself and my husband had our honeymoon road tripping around the Scottish Highlands. My favourite local spot in my home county of Sligo is Glencar Lake and the loop around Lough Gill Lake. You will also find me on the beaches all along the Sligo coast.
