Hay was born in London into a working class family of practicing Christians. She was the second eldest of five children to parents Nora and Tadg Herlihy, who had migrated to the United Kingdom from Cork, Ireland. She married Christopher Martin Hay and in 1982 they migrated with their four children to Wollongong, New South Wales.
Hay enrolled in Wollongong TAFE and subsequently found employment with the NSW Home Care Service, caring for the elderly and bedridden in Wollongong's outer suburbs. She became a union official and regional secretary of the Miscellaneous Workers’ Union and worked as an electorate officer to Jennie George, the Federal Member for Throsby.
Following the 2007 election, Hay was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to Health Minister Reba Meagher. She was stood down in February 2008 by the Premier Iemma being named in an ICAC inquiry into Wollongong Council. Hay was re-appointed in March 2008 after being cleared by the ICAC.
State Premier Nathan Rees dismissed Noreen Hay from her position as Parliamentary Secretary for Health on September 12, 2008 after allegations arose that she participated in simulated mammary intercourse with Police Minister Matt Brown at an office party in June. Both Brown and Hay denied the allegations.
