I am Cliona O’Connor, a Mum 4 unruly, but loveable rogues with a huge interest in health, fitness, nutrition & keeping my kids safe!

My little slice of the internet know as Leanmeanmomma won:

  • The Best Family/Parenting Blog Award in the 2016 Irish Bloggers Choice Awards
  •  The Best Parenting Blog at the 2016 Littlewoods Ireland Blog Awards;

So I’m proud of this my 5th baby!

Leanmeanmomma do it for yourself

I am the book left unwritten, the kitchen left a mess, the beds unchanged and the children left run riot but I am full of aspirations, dreams and good intentions.

I am a SAHM & a fitness fanatic.

This is  a place where I can record and share my messy life with you. My loves, hates, success’s, failings and any ramblings I that I may feel help change the world……well my one anyway! I am no expert but hey, who knows, maybe I can share some useful tips & give you the odd giggle along the way.

I am a brand Ambassador for Otterbox – known more lovingly as an Otterbox Insider.

I’m also a brand ambassador for Homebird Irish Chicken & Poultry – part of the O’Brien’s fine food family.

I have collaborated with many health, wellness & fitness brands alongside many parenting & lifestyle names.

Speaking at events is fast becoming a new (and unexpected!) string to my bow.  I have also hosted events and thoroughly enjoy doing so.

You may have seen my blog in the following:

A feature on Stellar.ie . You can view it here.

“The Evening Echo” on several occasions

“Like”  magazine.

I had fun guest blogging for a week on HerFamily.ie

I also got a feature on Ikea Live Magazine.

Stepping out of my comfort zone by presenting & demonstrating at The Wild Atlantic Seaweed Festival was scary but so much fun.

Feel free to contact me for my media kit at any time!!
