Róisín has performed in such venues as Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Club in New York, the Barbican Centre and Cadogan Hall in London. She has had several concertos written for her and has given world premiers of works by composers including Raymond Dean and Tomas Marco. Róisín has achieved many awards competing both nationally and internationally from an early age. She was the winner of the inaugural Ernest Bloch music competition in London as well as the first prize winner of the Stefan Milenkovich Violin Competition in Brentonico, Italy. Most recently Róisín was awarded the Maura Dowdall concerto prize, and as a result has been invited to perform with the RTE Concert Orchestra under the baton of John Finucane

Having received the Homi Kanga memorial prize for the highest recital mark in her year at the Royal Academy of Music, London, she has gone on to complete her Masters in Music Performance as a scholarship student of the Royal Irish Academy of Music, achieving a distinction. Róisín performs on a Van Hoof copy of the ‘Kathleen Parlowe’ Del Gesu.

Her programme juxtaposes old and new, her instrument and technique the one constant, exploring its range and expressive power as well as hinting at its history and culture.
