Catherine Neill

Catherine volunteered with the Vancouver St Brigid's Day Festival from 2019 to 2022.

Originally from a town located along the scenic coast of County Cork, she moved to Vancouver in 2011, exchanging the Atlantic for the Pacific Ocean.

Her passion is creating great places that build community. As an urban planner for the local municipal government, she focuses on community engagement and long-term planning. In her free time, she is involved in a number of community causes, from volunteering with the annual homeless count to co-founding an international group that looks at affordable housing solutions.


Catherine was one of the initial founding members of the Brigid Festival Vancouver team, joining in 2019. She is excited to be part of such a wonderful festival that celebrates the creativity of Irish women and women everywhere.
