A native of Dunmore, Co. Galway, Maloney earned a bachelor’s in English, sociology and politics from the National University of Ireland in Galway, and a master’s in American government from St. John’s University in Queens.
Maloney, married with two sons, moved to the U.S. in 1993, due to a “combination of ambition and a quest for sunshine!” she says.
“I think my Irish heritage becomes more crystallized for me through my kids. Though both boys were born here, they enjoy visiting two sets of grandparents in Ireland in the summer, particularly visiting the farm in Galway,” Maloney says. “They are intrigued by the history and the castles. They love the legends and they like to spout myth-busters at school on St. Patrick’s Day. It is revealing to view it through their eyes. I have found that because of them we are more interested in recording our family history and making sure that they don’t buy into media’s interpretation of what it is to be Irish.”
