She has been a Scout Leader in Newbridge since 2008, and she is part of the Scouting Ireland Volunteer Communications team.

She is a member and co-ordinator of a creative writing group which meets once a month in Newbridge Library.

Speaking about the show, Brenda said:

“My hope for the show is that it will be a mixture of human interest faith stories, reflections as well as religious news and current affairs. It will also delve into many different matters of faith with people of different ages and religious backgrounds. It’s an exciting challenge and one that I am very much looking forward to. Music will also be a big feature of the show and I am looking forward to discovering new sounds and music that maybe I have not come across before.

“Radio is a terrific medium for conversation and I am really looking forward to striking up all sorts of faith chats with all sorts of people!”
