I am Dr Rachel Murphy and I am a lecturer on the MA History of Family at the University of Limerick.

I hold a PhD in History and Digital Humanities and a Postgraduate Diploma in Geographical Information Systems, both from University College Cork.

I also hold an MA in the History of Family from the University of Limerick, and an MA in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford.

I live in the beautiful medieval walled town of Fethard in Co. Tipperary.
