I’m Meg Daly. I was born in Dubin, Ireland and emigrated to New Zealand at the height of David Lange’s reign in 1986 to take up employment as a Children’s Occupational Therapist at the Child Development Centre at Waikato Hospital. Over the years since then I worked in many different areas working with physically and intellectually disabled children and adults and the elders of our community as well as setting up a private company to contract to ACC to support those who have serious life changing injuries like spinal paralysis as the result of an accident.

After 20 years I changed my focus entirely in 2006 buying a midlife crisis lifestyle block in Te Kowhai and setting up a commercial bakery in the back garden. For 12 years I baked Celtic treats which I sold in the Hamilton, Cambridge and Te Awamutu Farmers’ markets. I also grew organic passionfruit for the markets and qualified as an Organic Horticulturalist. I was like an Ever-Ready battery!

And now at the age of 60 something and in yet another career turn-about, I have embraced the world of Real Estate with Harcourts Riverlands, Ngaruawahia.

A wise teacher once said that experiences, good and bad, bring wisdom and hopefully, my varied work and life experiences have rubbed off a wee bit of common sense along the way!

My chosen focus for 2022 is bringing first time buyers looking for affordable older style housing into the market. Ngaruawahia is my closest town and seemed a natural fit when it came to choosing a community to work in. Harcourts being a long established New Zealand company, was an obvious choice for me to work in too.

I’d like to assure you that during the past 35+ years I have assimilated almost entirely into the New Zealand way even to the point of supporting the All Blacks over Ireland. Now that is serious committment to an adopted country. I am in my second year of learning te reo Maori which has for me, opened up a treasure of whaktauki (wise proverbs) and precious stories and last but not least I finally understand what “Ladies, a plate and men, a slab” actually means.

Nga mihinui and thank you for taking time to get to know me.

Tangohia te wero. Take up the challenge.
