She has a dry but great sense of humor, and she knows everyone and everything happening in the events industry. She has a solution to every conceivable idea. Brain storming is more brain explosion. She is unflappable, and passionate about big events with lots of action, to make the adrenaline flow as it all comes together. Being Irish she loves the rugby and horse racing because ‘It’s the only thing we win!’ She loves eating out and adores animals. She once had horses called Bacardi and Coke.
