Clare has worked in genealogy and local history since 1997. Born in Co. Monaghan, she moved west in 1990 and now lives just outside Tuam, Co. Galway, in the same parish where her great-great grandparents lived and where her grandmother still lives aged 101. Her main inspiration comes from her experience of the place-people connection; something we feel directly, physically and emotionally. In September 2016 Clare completed an MA Local History in the University of Limerick having previously completed her H.Dip. Archival Studies in University College Dublin. In 2017 Clare established Wild Atlantic Family Research to provide assistance to those who want to learn more about their ancestors.

Clare can provide a number of interesting and engaging workshops focusing on:

  • My Place and People
  • My Story and My Memories
  • The Great Famine and the Story of the Irish Workhouse
  • Sailing Away - A Closer Look at Immigration
  • Family and Oral History research methodologies

Through these workshops students can build up a resource of knowledge about their family and understand their connection to place.
