reporter, The Times, Ireland edition
Originally from Miami, Catherine has has worked for The Sunday Times and The Times since July 2016 following completion of an MA in journalism. She is a general news reporter, with an interest in debunking pseudo-science, quackery, and misinformation.
One of her most notable projects involved repeatedly going undercover into a crisis pregnancy agency where she was given false information about the side effects of procuring an abortion, including that it made women child abusers and caused breast cancer.
She has also done investigative pieces into Ireland’s direct provision system and anti-vaccine movement, as well as on lighter topics like the plastic bag levy, ‘slow tourism’, and the alcohol bill. She was crowned Little Miss Mary from Dungloe 1999, but nobody takes her title seriously.
