Éimear started playing the violin at the age of seven in her native Belfast.

After completing her music degree, she moved to the North West of England where she gained a PCGE in secondary school music teaching. Eimear then left teaching to pursue her career as a performer/writer.
In February 2013 Eimear toured Holland Irish dance and music show, 'Celtic Rhythms'. She was the violinist and lead singer of 'Red is the Rose'. 

Eimear was also the original lead fiddle player/violinist and musician in the critically acclaimed show 'Essence of Ireland'. She toured the UK theatres for 3 years with the show and was mentioned frequently in the rave reviews for her energetic performances.

Éimear has performed many times alongside a top UK tenor, which has lead to performances for Honda in the Isle of Man, Budapest, London, Wales & Northern Ireland. 

She performed as the violin soloist at The UTV Business Awards at The Culloden Hotel in 2012.

As part of a violin duo Eimear performed at The Remembrance service in Belfast's Waterfront Hall on the main stage in October 2013. 

In 2019 Éimear opened The ABC  (Armagh, Banbridge City and Craigavon) Business Awards with a solo stage performance. In 2020 Éimear had the pleasure of performing for Terex Ecotec at The Global Dealer Conference event at The Guildhall in Derry, Northern Ireland. 

Éimear was the fiddle player and backing vocalist with top folk/country band 'The Bogtrotters' for 4 years. This led to performances throughout the UK, as well as Germany, St. Lucia and Holland.
As well as credited session work on films, including the soundtrack to the Bob The Builder movie, 'Built To Be Wild',

 

Éimear made an appearance playing the fiddle in Demi Moore's supernatural thriller, 'Half Light'.

Eimear was a semi-finalist in The UK Songwriting Competition for her song, 'Tommy'. 

In 1995 Eimear had the pleasure of having the lead acting role in a BBC Education screenplay, written by Damian Gorman and produced by Michael McGowan.

The screen play was called 'Café Society' which was part of the 'Study Ireland, English and Drama' series. Eimear was the presenter for the accompanying documentary and she provided the voice-over for the screen play and documentary. Following on from this Eimear was also an actress in a BBC reconstruction scene in the series 'Home Truths.'
