About us

girlsMaria is Donegal’s Thoroughly Modern Mammy.  Writing as The S-Mum since February 2015, her blog captures the realities of being a busy Mum to two little girls.  Maria’s realistic and no nonsense approach to Mammyhood, and the rollercoaster that is parenting, has been gratefully received by her audience. Mammy doesn’t hide behind filters and her language can sometimes be colourful. ‘Sanctimammies’ don’t like The S-Mum.
As well as being a full-time Mammy, Maria is an English Teacher.  She is hugely involved in Musical Theatre, spending her “spare time” on stage with Letterkenny Musical Society or hosting charity events.
She writes a weekly parenting column in Donegal Woman and is currently finishing her first novel (NOT about Mammying!)
She enjoys food, wine and hitting things in her Husband’s “Jim”… (Jim is part of the family too.)


The S-Mum Blog is about writing.  Mammy only collaborates and works with companies and causes she genuinely likes and uses.
