Irish Mothers & Property Rights

July 2, 2018 0 Comments

Our guest contributor highlights the very different outcomes when it comes to the property rights of a married vs. an unmarried woman: “Unmarried Irish Mothers Have No Rights” Yvonne Walsh is an unmarried Irish mother.  Perhaps not a politically correct distinction to make in this 21st century Ireland of alleged equal status for all.  But no […]

Why we tell these stories…

July 1, 2018 0 Comments

Because nothing changes until we cease to view our neighbours as them and we as us. Take for example the aftermath of one hearing before the Orieachtas. Padraic Kissane – the gently determined, brave and caring Financial Advisor who encouraged four of his tracker mortgage clients to step forward and testify before the Finance Committee. […]

A simple latin phrase. Generally, it refers to work undertaken, voluntarily, for the public good. For our purposes, we’re setting out a space for storytelling.

February 4, 2018 1 Comment

In 2012, I closed a TEDxBelfastWomen talk with “We’ll get there”. In 2018, I find we may actually be ‘there’. It referenced my call to throw off the adaptive behaviours common to many on this island – our silence, passivity, self deprecation and shaming ways, in order to take our place on a global stage.

On Echoing Irish Voices Congruent with Irish Values…

November 29, 2017 0 Comments

My hope/wish/prayer for 2018 is that Ireland will be a safe place for a #Whistleblower and an increasingly unsafe place for politicians who take cover with “it’s what’s legal” vs. “it’s what is ethical, proactive and kind”.
