I was brought up in County Limerick with my Granny’s sister.
The most important thing that happened to me in my life was being the daughter of an Irish single mother. It shaped my feminism
My father was unwell due to alcoholism and I had two brothers though we lived apart until I was six years of age. One of my brothers died due to mental health problems. My other brother is a professor of computer science at any Ivy League University in the US. We’re very close.
My superpower is that I have an intuitive sense and my appreciation of the arts, including contemporary music and theatre, as long as they are accessible now I have a disability.
