Margot's story

Born in Glasgow, I'm from a working class 1st generation Irish family. I'm a novelist as well as filmmaker.

I sole own my production company, purpleTV, and I write, produce and direct purple's documentary films. I have won three RTS awards to date. My focus is on strong storytelling and ensuring women's voices are remembered, celebrated and shared.

Here's a look at some of my films, all of which were on BBC platforms ALBA and iPlayer.
