Edel Murphy (General Manager Maternity Cover 2017)

Edel Murphy has joined the Kabosh team in April 2017 as General Manager covering Zoe’s maternity leave. A graduate from Queen’s University and Ulster University, her qualifications span a BA English and Psychology, a PGCE in English and Drama, and an Irish Language Diploma. She also holds an Associate Diploma from the Irish Board of Speech and Drama.

Originally from Donegal, her understanding of how theatre, creative writing and arts can empower and enrich individuals, was sparked through local amateur dramatics, féiseanna and a family ethos of the value of creativity. Her interests led to employment as a teacher, Education Officer with Simon Community and Public Achievement, before spending almost 10 years as an Arts Officer with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. In more recent years, Edel has reconnected directly with the Arts sector working with The Playhouse, Sole Purpose Productions and now Kabosh.
