Is Catherine Walker married?

Not much is known about Catherine’s family life. She was previously married and lived with her other half in Brighton.

She told the Irish Times in 2017: “I met my husband at my second season at Stratford.

“And we got married in the holidays from that. So it was a short courtship. When we got back from that, I felt that I had to get back to the sea. It was a sea thing. Some of my closest friends are still from that time.”

The pair are now divorced and Catherine lives in Dublin.
