About
Fiona O


I am an English teacher who is originally from London. I have lived in Bray since 2006 and love every aspect of living in Ireland. I am married to James who is an I.T. consultant and we have two boys aged 11 and 8. We live beside the coast and it’s great to be able to walk to the seafront. We are also close enough to the dart station which takes you into Dublin city centre.

Family information


My husband James is passionate about music and plays the double bass and the bass guitar. My sons are learning to play the cello and therefore music is important to us as a family. Our sons also enjoy playing football, chess and Lego. As a family we like to go for walks, enjoy good food, listen to music or watch films. I love reading and there are plenty of books in the house to explore both for adults and children. I enjoy cooking and am always keen to try different recipes. I also enjoy gardening!
