Barbara Scully


Barbara Scully is a well known writer, columnist, and broadcaster in Ireland. She is frequently published in the national press and magazines. Her first book, ‘Wise Up, Power, Wisdom and the Older Woman’ was published in summer 2022 and has been widely well received. Marian Keyes described it as “a warm, accessible, personal account of what it is to be a woman - and the unexpected courage and freedom we get as we age”.


Barbara is a familiar voice on radio and TV, contributing to talk shows on both local and national radio and has a weekly ‘agony aunt’ slot on the Moncrieff Show on Newstalk radio (national radio).


Barbara is married to the photographer Paul Sherwood. They have three daughters, two grandchildren, a dog, four cats, and a resident fox in their garden near Dun Laoghaire, in County Dublin.
