About Catherine Conlon

Catherine Conlon has a degree in Medicine and is a lecturer in Public Health at UCC. Her keen interest in matters health-related gave rise to the idea for a book that would explore the depths beneath the superficial distractions of modern Irish life: consumerism and noise. A mother of four living in Cork, she cites winning the Young Scientist Exhibition as a schoolgirl in 1981 as a turning point in her life, making her realise that she could do anything if she wanted it enough. Happiness, for her, comes from stopping to think and see, valuing silence, mindfulness, compassion and, above all, following your own path.
