I'm a Dublin girl, but I moved down to Limerick in May to be with my fiance, David.

We've been together since secondary school, and we just decided to give it a go living together. It's been wonderful down here.

My job is a bit more flexible than his, so I moved down. I didn't know what to expect, but I absolutely love it.

I spent the summer going up and down to Mayo to film the new series of the Hardy Bucks, and now I'm in rehearsals for a new play.

Eddie, The Viper and Buzz were brilliant - they were in top form and the shoot was totally mental.

I play a new girl in town called Patty who starts going out with one of the lads and then there's a weird love triangle going on.

They were so funny to work with, and we were struggling not to laugh all the time.

I'd go out for a drink with them that evening, but you couldn't drink too much because the next day you'd be up at 7am and they'd been throwing improv at you so you had to have your wits about you.

Now I'm in rehearsals for a new play called Separation about the War of Independence and it's a very physical role.

Women were really involved, so there are lots of action scenes with guns.
