Nora Hill was an Irish opera singer who came to Australia in 1924. She married Sydney newspaperman George Warnecke (1894-1981) (qv) who founded The Australian Women's Weekly. She continued her career in opera and broadcasting, and wrote poetry, much of which expressed her love of Ireland and her homesickness for her native land.

With her husband she spent several years in America, and in 1957 they finally settled in Ireland, where she published her poetry.
