Margaret graduated from the 2 year full-time acting course in the Gaiety School of Acting in 2010. Since then she has worked in many productions including Chris in ‘Broadening’ directed by Ronan Phelan (Rough Magic – associate director) for the ABSOLUTE Fringe Festival in The Lir Studio 2 (2012), Emily in ‘Digging for Fire’ directed by Matt Torney (Rough Magic – associate director) in the Project Arts Centre (2013), and as Robin in the touring production of ‘Jezebel’ directed by Lynne Parker (Rough Magic) (2014). In 2015 she toured around Ireland and England with the highly successful ‘My English Tongue, My Irish Heart’ directed by Martin Lynch (Greenshoot Productions) which started its run, in Belfast’s Waterfront Studio. In 2016 she wrote and produced her own show with the Show in a Bag initiative entitled ‘The Humours of Bandon’ which enjoyed rave reviews, a sell-out run in Bewley’s Café Theatre @ Powerscourt and earned her the ‘Bewley’s Little Gem Award’ as well as a nomination for Best Performer at the Tiger Dublin Fringe Awards 2016. To round off a very successful 2016, she played Betsy/ensemble in The Abbey Theatre’s production of ‘Anna Karenina’ dir. Wayne Jordan, in a new version of the Tolstoy classic revisited by celebrated Irish playwright Marina Carr, which enjoyed a sell-out run and played to the end of January 2017.

Fishamble: The New Play Company are currently producing ‘The Humours of Bandon’ and Margaret has performed in venues nationwide as part of the spring leg of her tour including a sell-out 3 week run in Bewley’s Café Theatre in March. Full details of this and her upcoming tour dates are available at

Margaret enjoys performing in comedy sketches online. Her two most popular videos include ‘The Fiscal Treaty spoof vid’ (doletv) which has garnered nearly 60,000 views on youtube and ‘Are Chairs like Facebook’ which has over 206,000 views.

Margaret is also a former champion Irish Dancer and teaches modern, jazz and hip hop dancing in the Gaiety School of Acting for their summer Triple Threat boot camp.

In addition to her acting credits, Margaret also works with toBE, a forum theatre company, as an actor, improviser and deviser.

Margaret is a strong alto singer having starred in musicals and dance shows as a child, teenager and college student. She played one of the principal parts in the Scottish opera version of Leonard Bernstein’s ‘Candide’ directed by the late Gerry Haugh which opened the O’Reilly Theatre in January 2000.
