About Terry O’Driscoll

Born and raised in West Cork, Terry studied and qualified in interior design in the UK. Since then he has returned home to create Plad, offering his unique design and decoration services.

The Interior Association of Ireland granted Terry full membership in interior architecture in October 2016.

Terry also regularly contributes articles to some of Ireland’s leading interior design magazines as a freelance writer. He recently had his own highly regarded column in The Southern Star newspaper.

Design is something that Terry has always been passionate about. His ambition is to provide excellent residential and commercial design that:

  • functions well
  • is aesthetically pleasing
  • is environmentally sensitive
  • integrates with its natural, domestic, social or public space

The key to this, as with most things in life, is simplicity.
