General Experience

Originally trained in Irish University Press, I have worked as a free-lance indexer for over 30 years, specialising in areas such as law (and legal history), archaeology, history (general and local), archives, biography, politics, sociology, religion and arts. I received a Highly Commended award for a UK law publication in the Wheatley Awards in 1993.



My primary degree is in Archaeology. I have compiled detailed indexes to excavation reports, journals, etc., including Knowth, Volume 5: Finds (RIA, 2012), 12 monographs of the National Roads Authority/Transport Infrastructure Ireland,and several cumulative indexes to annual journals of the archaeological societies of Counties Cork and Meath.
