Caroline was born in Ballinasloe and then lived in Ferbane, Athlone, Duncannon, Cork, and Al Ain (in the UAE) as a child.
Caroline now lives in Dubai, UAE, with her husband (David) and children (Emily and Rory). She teaches UAE nationals at Dubai Men's College in Dubai's Academic City.
Her hobbies are running (well, runnning at the same speed that their dog walks), reading (when she gets the time - her favourite author at the moment is Patrick Gale), TV box sets (to avoid watching rubbish TV - currently watching Mad Men), and walks on the beach in the evening.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Caroline:
