Mary designs gardens that marry the needs and wishes of the lands guardian with the needs and wishes of the land itself. With her roots in natural gardening theory, Mary seeks to create spaces that are healing, truthful and magical.

A Chelsea flower show gold medal winner, Mary has designed gardens internationally for more than 17 years, including commissions in Kew Royal botanical gardens in London as well as occasional stints of garden television presenting for RTE and BBC.

Mary has recently published a comprehensive and ground – breaking book; The Garden Awakening. Her new approach to garden design is a practical treasure map that leads gardeners into a gentle and healing relationship with the land.
This beautiful book is a step by step instruction manual drawing on ancient methods of working with the land and using them to invite the power and energy of nature back into your life and surround your house and life in its life giving healing embrace.

A feature length film: Dare To Be Wild based on Mary’s true life story made by Irish director Vivienne de Courcey, was released in 2016.

Sharon Shannon

Wildlife Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is delighted to announce that Sharon Shannon has kindly agreed to be appointed as Patron of the Charity. A hugely successful musician and recording artist, Sharon has achieved widespread recognition performing to audiences and influential leaders across the world. Sharon’s career to this point has resulted in an extensive music catalogue and album collection sold worldwide; her more recent album was Sacred Earth released in 2017.

While Sharon is widely recognised for her traditional Irish influenced compositions she has also performed and collaborated with several other prominent and successful recording artists across many musical genres and has been the recipient of prestigious industry awards.

As well as Sharon’s love of music she is equally passionate about the welfare and protection of animals. During her early childhood she grew up in an environment where animals were part of daily life. Sharon’s deep sense of understanding and empathy for animals and their care and protection is an area that she feels very strongly about and she has personally assisted and supported efforts with various animal rescue and animal rights organisations.

All of these experiences and insights have driven her relentless advocacy of the importance of animal welfare and protection across all spectrums.

Having Sharon as a Patron of Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is hugely appreciated; helping to promote greater awareness of the invaluable work the Charity undertakes in the area of wildlife protection and conservation.
