BiographyHaving completed a BA (2005), MA (2007) and PhD (2011) in Celtic Studies in Queen's University Belfast, I moved to Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies to pursue a three-year postdoctoral scholarship, following which I moved to Cork in 2014.
Research InterestsMy primary research interests are the history, development and social function of Gaelic song in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man, as well as among the Gaelic diaspora.
I am particularly interested in women's songs (laments, lullabies, labour-songs and panegyrics); the Jacobite song tradition; songs which have been absorbed into Gaelic from other traditions; and songs which have undergone a considerable degree of remoulding within the tradition and therefore exist in a number of different variants.
