She was named Irish Tatler’s Woman of the Year in Music and performed the songs of Radiohead with a 40-piece orchestra at the 2015 Wilderness Festival to much acclaim. Other acting roles include the film Mrs Henderson Presents alongside Judi Dench and Will Young, the RTE TV series Rebellion as Countess Mackievicz and a scene stealing performance on BBC Two’s Later… With Jools Holland (which lead her to support him at Royal Albert Hall).
