Kathy Maguire is the mother of James Maguire.
Kathy Maguire grew up during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. She had the best eyebrows in Derry according to Sarah McCool. When she comes back at the end of season 2 she still has great eyebrows. She traveled to England to have an abortion, which she did not go through with and became a mother to James. When Kathy got divorced she and James moved back to Derry. She moved to London on James' first day of school (without him knowing) and didn't return until after the ceasefire was announced.
She has started her own business in self-adhesive labels.
Kathy appears to be irresponsible, selfish, and manipulative. She can often say and do things which appear arrogant and ignorant to how it might impact those around her. Kathy speaks with fondness for her son, James, however, and is admired, to an extent, by her niece.
