Dr Hilary Tierney

Applied Social Studies
Maynooth University


I contribute across the Department’s programmes in the areas of youth work theory, policy and practice, supervision, professional skills development and research theory and practice. My practice and research interests converge in a specific interest in reflective practice, professional supervision, informal education, ethics and values in professional practice and the professional formation of gender conscious practitioners. I am particularly interested in the potential of informal social education to develop young people's critical capacities as local and global citizens who are committed to equality, social justice and human rights.
