Hi, I’m Lorraine and I’m from a small town on the south coast of Ireland. After finishing my BA in Applied Languages at the University of Limerick, I moved to Valencia to teach English. Afterwards, I came to Edinburgh to study a Masters in Language Education at the University of Edinburgh and I’ve more or less been here since!

Travel and sport are my two big passions in life. According to an online test I’ve only seen 8% of the world and I need to see more! I’m a weightlifter and enjoy the gym. I support Waterford GAA, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Munster, Ireland and Golden State Warriors, so if you like sport come and talk to me!! I also love cats, house programmes, reading and chocolate (a little too much!).
