About Aoife O'Dea

Aoife is a self-proclaimed fitness fanatic and has a love of all things exercise. Aoife is always keen to try out new activities from duathlons to dragon boats which are a good match given the firm’s enthusiasm for such challenges!

When Aoife is also a not in the gym she can be found indulging in a spot of fine dining about town. This love of fine dining can be justified as a requirement more than an indulgence given her love of food but distaste for cooking.

Aoife is a keen traveller and spent a year studying in Prague. Well, she claims she was studying. Still, it demonstrates cultural and academic diversity, which is always a good thing.
