EleventyFour regularly plays live in Dublin, including venues like The Workman's Club, Whelans, The Grand Social, The Sugar Club and Crawdaddy. She has performed all around Ireland and also toured to Holland, Italy and Scotland.

State Magazine featured her in their Faces of 2011 special edition and indeed the year Twenty Eleventy has been a special year for EleventyFour.

"It would be a hard heart that couldn't be charmed by this solo female's acoustic vignettes that are as comedic as they are brimming with melody." -- STATE.IE
"...cute as a button Kimya Dawson-like songs..." -- JIM CARROLL, THE IRISH TIMES
"Warm, and full of heart. A lovely little record." ★★★★ -- SWEAR I'M NOT PAUL
"Eleventy has the ability to bring the magic to every song ... A record full of wit, sing-a-long-ability and charm ... If The Joy Imperative doesn't give you a warm and fuzzy feeling, you're completely dead inside. And we'd get that checked out if we were you." -- POP CULTURE MONSTER
"... soft folky, upbeat songs with kaleidoscopic melodies on guitar with a voice of kindergarten cheeriness." HARMLESS NOISE
"EleventyFour is as funny as she is quirky. Upbeat, bubbly and full of sunshine. She's abstained from the clutches of doom that being a singer songwriter can bring. Her memorable lyrics and melodies make for some very entertained audiences." -- MIXTAPE.IE
