Sinéad has built a community of over 11,000 followers and coined the hashtag #TiredMammy30minutes to encourage members to make time to read every day.

Sinéad has facilitated interviews with several Irish authors, such as Andrea Mara, Jamie O’Connell, Catherine Ryan Howard, and Sophie White; and authors Fíona Scarlett, Dolen Perkins-Valdez and Deirdre Finnerty have joined Tired Mammy Book Club discussions. She has been invited as a guest on the following podcasts: Good Luck with the Book, the International Literature Festival Dublin podcast, and Another Chapter podcast. She also featured in a piece, in the Irish Independent, titled ‘Meet The Bookstagrammers’.
