Welcome to Diary of Dionysus, my blog about all things fashion and family. Who is Dionysus? The Greek god of wine and fun – so that should give you a clue!
Originally from Navan, Co Meath, I have been working in public relations and living in Dublin for the past 10 years, getting in a bit of writing from time to time. I got married in France a little over two years ago and shortly expecting our first visit from the stork, so this blog is changing to reflect the change from party PR girl to slightly more sedate and sober grown up.
You can visit my Etsy shop for lots of cool event-planning props and invitations, including murder mystery scripts and wedding printables.

With an attention span snapped by social media, my flash fiction piece ‘When Will Mammy Be Home?’ was published in Number Eleven magazine in 2013. Attention span restored by digital detox, ‘The Queen of the Land’ is my first novel, which I completed in January 2015. In March 2015 I was awarded the overall winner of the Wills Writing Awards for my short story ‘A Toddler and the Grand National’.
Who is Dionysus?
Dionysus was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology.
