Joy is our St Patrick's Society President, taking on the role again for the third year running for 2023. As a mum to four children, she's a self-described glutton for punishment!
Joy hails from Thurles in Co Tipperary, a long way from Singapore where she's been for over 4 years. Prior to moving here she spent 7 years in Hong Kong so is a pro on expat living.
She originally joined the committee to nurture the connection to home, meet people and build friendships with people she instantly has something in common with. If that doesn't keep her busy enough she also manages to squeeze in running, swimming, coaching rugby with Centaurs and helping out with the Singapore Gaelic Lion Cubs! In her spare time, she works as a Senior Director for a major global bank. She is a wonder woman and the rock of the society.
Nadia is our Vice President for 2023, having moved up the ranks from first managing membership in 2019 before progressing to Treasurer and now onto the VP role.
She's a true global citizen. Born in Azerbaijan, she's lived in 7 countries and travelled to over 45. One country that stole her heart is Ireland where she lived for 16 years. She's been in Singapore since 2019 and lives here with her teenage son.
She got involved in the committee to help Irish friends find connections, friendships and a sense of belonging. She also loves the craic at all the events! She works in software recruitment and in her spare time enjoys badminton, Gaelic football, watersports and of course travelling.
Mary is our Treasurer for the coming year, having been on the committee for over 2 years.
She originally joined to stay connected with the Irish community and help new people to Singapore feel welcome and connected too.
She's a Portlaoise woman by birth but home is in Clarecastle, Co Clare. She's been in Singapore for 3.5 years this time round. She did her first stint here in the late 90's.
She enjoys keeping fit, yoga, travelling, hiking and socialising. She prides herself on her busy work schedule of keeping the Singapore economy going as a DP holder!
Sarah is our Society Secretary who keeps us all in line. As a teacher, she's a natural fit for the role.
She hails from Trim, Co Meath (not Dublin as often has to correct!). She's been living in Singapore for over 3 years, having moved from Abu Dhabi.
She's an active member of the Irish community in Singapore, participating in the Ireland Funds too. She's a keen Gaelic footballer and can be found on the field with the Singapore Gaelic Lions at the weekends (by day, and in the pub with them by night!).
Tammy is a literal Rockett to St Pat's, joining the committee new for 2023 with an abundance of energy and drive. She's been in Singapore for over 5 years and spent 15 years in Sydney before here.
She's originally from the Garden county, hailing from Greystones. She's a super mum to a tween girl and a Director at a major international bank, but somehow finds the time to dedicate to St Pat's.
She joined the committee to feel a sense of belonging and help give her daughter strong Irish roots. She loves running, reading, movies, cooking, and of course, socialising.
Sorcha is our legal eagle, joining the committee new in 2023. She is of course a lawyer by trade, working for a tech company here in Singapore.
She's originally from Naas in Co Kildare and lived in London before Singapore. She's mum to two beautiful little boys with her Italian husband.
She joined the committee to have a group of sound Irish people she can tap into to fill her cup and feel close to home.
Laura is new to the committee for 2023. As a marketing professional by day, she's using her skills to keep all thing web and email for St Pat's in shape.
She's a Donegal woman, although sadly has lost the lovely lilt having spent 12 years in London before moving to Singapore. She's a mum to literal Irish twins, with her own 4 year old boy/girl combo.
She joined the committee to keep the connection with home, help others to do so to... and to try to get her accent back! In her spare time she enjoys HiiT training, socialising and travelling.
Clodagh is a long term committee member on board since 2019. As a Mullingar woman she's a huge Niall Hornan and Joe Dolan fan (Oh me, oh my...).
She's a mum to 3 kids, with the older 2 back back in University in Ireland. She's a qualified and experienced nurse, who loves to bake and entertain. She fills her spare time with volunteering at her daughter's school, walking and the odd attempt at yoga.
She joined the committee to meet people and get involved in Irish events.
Rachel is our resident Dub, a crucial part of any Irish grouping. She joined the committee new in 2023 after 4 years living in Singapore (thanks Covid for the lack of opportunity!).
She brings a wealth of experience from her fundraising activites for Epilepsy Ireland, back home in the Big Smoke.
She's mum to the gorgeous 6 year old Max. She's a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) expert for a major recruitment firm.
In her spare time, she loves to socialise, keep fit and is a bit of a film and TV buff. She's partial to the odd Tayto crisp too!
Noreen moved to Singapore in 2008 and is married with two little girls.
She comes from Killarney, Co. Kerry but has lived longer out of Ireland than in! Prior to moving to Singapore she lived in Hong Kong, London and Tokyo.
Noreen is a certified yoga teacher and also enjoys running, traveling, reading and socialising (with an emphasis on talking) following an incident with the Blarney Stone in the 1980s!
