She has worked for various organisations in Limerick City over the past twenty years - as a social care worker, supporting people around addiction, mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse. Some of her many passions, outside of her advocacy role, include working and supporting Traveller families around domestic abuse and Traveller children in foster care. She also played an active role in the ‘Limerick Traveller Covid 19 support group’ on a voluntary basis. Margaret worked with the Irish Travellers Access to Justice team as a peer researcher.
