Áine is currently studying for her Master of Music degree at the TU Dublin Conservatoire, under the tutelage of Orla Boylan and Mairead Hurley. She holds a Licentiate Diploma with distinction in Music Performance from Trinity College London. Recent operatic roles include Käthchen in Werther (Lyric Opera Ireland), and Lady Bertram in the Irish premiere of Mansfield Park (TU Dublin Conservatoire). Áine has performed with the Irish National Opera and the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival as a chorus member. Áine was part of the Sestina Early Music Ensemble’s Next Generation Training Programme 2021-22. Between 2017-20, Áine was a member of Edinburgh Studio Opera under the baton of eminent conductor William Conway. With the company, she made her debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the role of Mrs Scot (The Tumbling Lassie). She also covered the roles of Mamma Lucia (Cavalleria Rusticana) and Olga (Eugene Onegin), and played Dalila (Samson et Dalila) in a scenes concert. Áine has also enjoyed success as a concert soloist, working with the Occasional Singers on Handel's Messiah, and with the Edinburgh University Music Society Chorus for performances of Mendelssohn's Elijah, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle and Haydn’s The Creation.
