Welcome to my website. I am a member of the Department of History at the University of Limerick, where I teach on the MA History of Family. 

I am also a consultant to the Irish Historic Towns Atlas project at the Royal Irish Academy, where I am involved in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) projects. 

My research interests include the history of family, landed estates, migration, local history, online pedagogy and digital humanities.


I teach on the MA History of Family (Online) which attracts students from all over the world.  Previous students have come from Australia, Britain and Canada to name but a few. Feel free to contact me if you would like to ask any questions about the course.
