Joy Flanagan

I'm Joy and this is my 3rd year on the committee and my 2nd as President. I'm originally from Thurles, in Tipperary and have lived in Asia for over 10 years; almost 7 in Hong Kong before moving to Singapore. I'm married to Colm from Laois and we have 4 kids. I work in Finance and am involved in Diversity & Inclusion initiatives in region.


I am a foodie and love to cook and bake. I'm also a big fan of Irish Whiskey and I love to sing, those 2 usually go hand in hand! I coach under-age girls rugby with Centaurs and most Sunday mornings can been found cheering on the Singapore Gaelic Lion cubs training.  

I am passionate about keeping a connection with Ireland, and have tried to make sure my kids feel that sense of belonging too. If you see me out and about make sure you say hello!


Vice President
Nadia Kiely

Hello! I'm Nadia Kiely. Living in Singapore since 2019 with my husband and a teenage son. I enjoy travelling and I have lived in 7 countries and travelled to 45. Outside of work I like socializing, making new connections, trying new experiences be that a new restaurant, an activity, or scenery. I believe not a day should pass without a new experience.
The society members were among the first people I met in Singapore when I moved here, instantly feeling a part of the community with events to attend and new friends to meet. If this society can add something positive to the community in anyway, then its all worth it. 
My favourite quote is: “Be happy for this moment, this moment is your life” O. Khayyam

Simon Brook


I’m Simon and I arrived in Singapore from Switzerland with my wife Marie (who hails from Mullingar) and two daughters in August 2019.  

I’m from the U.K. and with me it’s a case of English blood with an Irish heart - I’m wedded to the community through its commitment to the preservation and sharing of its culture, the love of craic and the warmth of its members.

I’m delighted we can raise our two girls in the culture whilst outside the country, and hope by my efforts to keep that opportunity alive for others who follow behind.


Conor Doheny

Hi, my name is Conor Doheny, looking after our members and membership renewals.

I have lived in Asia for over 10 years, with the past 4 spent here in Singapore.

Originally from Navan, Co. Meath, I have 4 kids, 2 of whom live in UK, and 2 younger kids who live here in Singapore. Keeping the connection between Irish here in Singapore is as important as keeping family connected over the thousands of miles, so it means a lot to me that we in the St. Patrick's Society do our part in making sure we're one big family.

Clodagh Ryan

Hi my name is Clodagh Ryan and I have been a member of the St. Patrick’s society committee since coming to Singapore in the summer of 2019! I am from Mullingar co. Westmeath. I live here with my husband , younger daughter and crazy adopted  dog! Our 2 older kids are in Ireland for University. I am a nurse but I’m not working while we are in Singapore. 
The St. Patrick’s society is a wonderful network of people who enjoy getting together and having fun. I think it’s really important to have the opportunity to support one another when so far from home.
