Management

I started my Early Years journey when my 1st child was born and alongside my partner John we created Tir Na nÓg Creche & Preschool in September 2002. We believe all children deserve to have a safe, educational, caring and nurturing environment to learn and grow in. 

 

We strive every day to provide a lasting experience for each child that joins us at Tir Na nÓg / Rainbows End. I have 4 beautiful children of my own that keep me very busy and on my toes.
