Trainee Accountant - Sponsored by Street Sweep Ltd, Apache Pizza, and Man O'War Bar & Restaurant

I was born a ‘Macra Baby’ and proudly come from North County Dublin! I am a trainee accountant working for AIB in Dublin. I’m a member of Balbriggan Golf Club and Man O’War GFC. With Man O’War, I am both a ladies Gaelic football referee and current ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ champion, an event which I danced the disco in 2017. Proudest achievement is co-founding a black-tie charity event in Balbriggan which has raised over  €19,000 since 2013 for local cancer charities. Biggest sporting moment was my Leinster senior rugby debut in 2011 against Newport Gwent Dragons when I was the official mascot ‘Leo the Lion’ for one game only.
