Corporate

I am proud to have represented Ireland on many diplomatic and cultural occasions both at home and abroad. My performances have entertained Heads of State, Captains of Industry and Foreign Diplomats at home in Ireland, in Europe and in North America. My gift of song has been used to honour ex President of Ireland Mary Robinson, Poet Laureate Seamus Heaney on winning The Nobel Prize, Senator George Mitchell during a ceremony honouring his contribution to the Northern Ireland Peace Process, and Boston College President Fr Donald J Monan SJ on the occasion of his retirement. It was an honour to be chosen student to represent the International Students during the ceremony  in Conte Forum  as I sang  before 12,000 guests.  I have also been Ireland’s representative at an International Conference in Brighton Conference Centre  where I shared the Stage with Sir Richard Baker and my work has  also  brought me to The World Economic Forum in Davos.  More recently I have  acted as MC at International Music Conferences, International Assemblies and Awards Ceremonies.

As the sole performer at an EU Presidency Dinner in Brussels, the Irish Minister introduced me as “Ireland’s First Lady of Song” – a title I am very proud of!

 

I also act as an entertainment consultant through Seaver Ryan Entertainment and, together with my colleague Noel Ryan, can arrange after dinner programmes that I have developed for the corporate entertainment market. These programmes feature the best of Irish music and dance and are tailored to suit the needs of each individual client.
