Director & Proprietors
Catherine lives in the parish of Ballinhassig with her husband Tim (also a director of Bishopscourt) and their three children. Catherine originally studied Marine Radio and Electronics in Cork RTC. After some time travelling, she worked in Australia for a year as a computer engineer before moving to America where she lived and worked for six years as a paralegal in a law firm in San Francisco. In 1995, she returned to Ireland with her husband and began the process of building Bishopscourt with her sister-in-law Patsy.
Catherine adapted her computer knowledge and legal background to the administration of the nursing home and learnt and created systems that ensured the smooth running of the nursing home on a daily basis. With the introduction of HIQA (Health Information and Quality Authority) and the requirement for rigorous compliance, Catherine worked tirelessly in achieving all requirements and the registration of the nursing home by HIQA.
