Mary was a distinguished employment lawyer, academic and social entrepreneur. Founder of two national charities in Ireland (The Irish Hospice Foundation & The Wheel), her contribution in those areas changed the face of the charitable and hospice sectors in Ireland. Over the course of her own six year journey with breast cancer, and inspired by her deep faith and spirituality, she lived out a path of love, compassion and wholeness that she came to call The Pink Ribbon path. She was married, with one son.
