Claire Barry is director of Mind Yourself, a London charity working to reduce health inequalities in the Irish community in London .

A native of Limerick she arrived in London in 2009 via 20 years in Dublin. Having lived on an island all her life she eventually achieved a life-long ambition and learnt to sail when she arrived in one of the world’s largest inland cities.

She has spent much of the last four years learning the things she was sure she knew already. She has never done stand-up or appeared on the stage at the Edinburgh fringe or any other festival.

As part of the Mind Yourself team she tweets as @MindYourself3.
