Some of my favourite roles to date include:- The feisty, yet warm & compassionate Maureen in Alfonso Films gorgeous short, PAT, with Rosaleen Lenihan & Moe Dunford; Mary, the bighearted, resilient, matriarcal glue opposite Pat Shortt in the Gerard Barrett /TV3’s IFTA nominated SMALLTOWN, the straight-talking but weary hospital consultant trying to talk some sense into THE YOUNG OFFENDERS, Peter Foott/RTE/BBC and Maureen in two wildly different theatrical productions of THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE.

“Pauline O’Driscoll gives an excellent performance as the droll depressive daughter” – Marjorie Brennan, Irish examiner – Re: Cosy
I’ve had a ball over the last 6 months bringing the multi-layered, warm, funny, heart-breaking wonder that is SEVEN AGES OF MAM to Brighton Fringe where it was really well received, getting a “MUST SEE SHOW” from Fringe Review & being shortlisted for BEST NEW PLAY by New Writing South/ Brighton Fringe; following PAT on it’s highly successful film festival run; shooting a fun TV commercial for Bord Bia; diving into the role of the driven, assertive, determined but troubled Detective Inspector Liz Delahunt in Avalon Films & Knightvision Productions soon to be released feature film DREDGES and bringing the reclusive, quirky, depressed yet wonderfully witty character of Ed to life in COSY written by Katie O’Reilly and directed by Phillip Zarrilli for Gaitkrash Theatre Co. at Cork Midsummer Festival.
