About Me:

I was born and reared in Dublin, a true fan of all things Christmas and traditional.  I volunteered with the Christmas FM family in 2017 after undertaking radio training under the mindful eye of Head Elf Adrian Nolan.

My elf is Marshmallow Gingertree – she makes tasty marshmallows and chocolate covered candy for all the good little children, wearing an amber and orange tunic the colour of exotic spices. She’s a bit of a show-off who likes to climb the Christmas tree and be the centre of attention!

Your role at Christmas FM:

Presenter/Digital Editor/ Christmas VoxPops at the Airport

Why Christmas FM:

I have always been involved in community and charitable work and Christmas FM brings those two things together in a lovely way – reaching people in their homes, their workplaces, and abroad while creating a magical sense of Christmas and raising funds for worthy causes. That is the beauty of Christmas, and all achieved with a team of people as diverse as you can imagine!

My Favourite Christmas Song:

Jonah Lewie – Stop the Cavalry

My Favourite Christmas Food:

Christmas Honey Baked Ham with Cloves

My Favourite Christmas Movie:

It’s a Wonderful Life

My Favourite Christmas Tradition:

Time with family, and the candle lighting in the window to welcome the weary

Where I’m From:
