Bríd Connolly began working in adult and community education in 1985, as a women’s studies tutor, based on her degree in philosophy and the newly emerging multi-disciplinary field brought about by the feminist movement. She developed her interest in feminist pedagogy and critical group work as a result of this work, which she brought to work with people with disabilities and community development and education, both in local communities in the hinterland and within National University of Ireland - Maynooth. Her research interests are centered on critical pedagogy and the part it plays in praxis.
