“From her brilliant work directing the highly successful “Annie” at the Olympia Theatre and Cork Opera House, to a run of six incredible sell-out Christmas pantomimes at the Olympia Theatre, she has been first-class. A lady of extreme charm and a highly professional approach to everything she does.”
