Originally from Northern Ireland, Bronagh moved to Liverpool to study a BA in Drama at John Moores. She then went on to train as a physical theatre performer at Hope Street Ltd, this is where she developed her passion for directing. In 2006 She was elected Young Persons Theatre Representative of Britain through the British Arts Council and travelled to the Philippines as part of a culture exchange aimed at promoting cross cultural collaborations. She has directed shows in Ireland, Britain, Turkey and the Philippines.
In 2011 Bronagh directed and produced Henry VI Part I at the excavation site of The Rose Theatre Bankside. It was the first time a company had been allowed to perform on the actual ruins, the majority of which is submerged in water. The production was nominated by The Off West End Awards for Best Production and Best Director.
