I'm Maria Rushe

and Mum

Let me be part of your journey

My Tagline Has Always Been

Being Mammy,
Being Me

My tagline has always been “Being Mammy, Being Me”, and as my kids are growing up, it’s time for my website to move on too.

I'm an award-winning parenting writer but there's more to me than just my blog.

As well as being a writer, I am a Fitness Instructor and run Rushe Fitness in Letterkenny with my husband, Emmet.

I’m a full time Secondary School Teacher, teaching English for 20 years, and I'm the proud Director of Letterkenny Musical Society.

Whether you want something lovely to read with a cuppa, or some guidance on fitness and exercise, you'll find it here. Just follow the tabs! 

Happy Reading!
