Originally from Co. Wexford, Seána grew up with a deep grá for Irish music and culture, attending local Comhaltas classes, sessions and Fleadhanna from a very young age. Seána followed her heart at 17 years old when she moved out West to the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht to study and immerse herself in the Irish language, music and dance for 4 years while completing a BA. Degree in Cumarsáid | Communications through Irish in Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge - Gaeltacht campus of University of Galway. She was awarded “Gaeilgeoir na Bliana | Irish Speaker of the Year” by the University in 2013 and achieved an Honours Degree result in 2015. This was an honour - having not been brought up speaking Irish or attending a Gaelscoil.

It was in Connemara that she became hooked on sean nós dancing, one of the most ancient forms of Irish dance. She was inspired and taught by masters of the art; Emma O’ Sullivan and the Devane Brothers. She then spent a year teaching and studying in the Gaeltacht Quarter of West Belfast, where the Irish language and culture are at the heart of the community. Seána was then presented with a Post Graduate Certificate in Irish Medium Education from St. Mary’s University College, a College of Queen’s University, Belfast. Seána then went on to teach in many Gaelscoileanna, as well as provide adult classes in the Irish language both in person for Conradh na Gaeilge and online privately to learners all over the world. Having lived, studied, and taught in many different Gaeltacht areas in Ireland, Seána has a deep understanding and fluency in the Irish language & it's various dialects.


Seána first music release “The Lonsesome Boatman” went to No.1 on Southeast Radio Music Charts in 2020. Her dance dreams came through in 2019, when she was invited to dance for the legendary Kilfenora Céilí Band on their 110th Anniversary Tour at the Kilkenny Trad Fest to a sold-out audience. She also performed music and dance for the Opening of the John F Kennedy Irish American Hall of Fame onboard the Dunbrody Famine Ship, for Culture Night and has displayed sean nós barrel dancing on TG4. Most of all, she loves to take part at local pub sessions, Fleadhanna and festivals. Seána has been very lucky to be awarded County Fleadh Champion in sean nós dance, tin whistle and concertina over the years. She has been teaching Irish music for over 10 years and holds a Distinction Diploma in Irish Traditional Music Performance from London College of Music. 
Seána shared the magic and joy of Irish music, song, and dance with the girls of Kasba Protection Home and with the patients of The Hope Foundation Hospital in Calcutta, India while on voluntary work in 2019, for which she received a Global Citizen Award.

Seána is currently living in Galway city, Ireland’s bilingual city, teaching the Irish language, music & sean nós dance within the Irish speaking community for organisations such as; Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge - University of Galway, Conradh na Gaeilge and An Bruach Thoir - The Gaeltacht of Galway City East.
