Paediatric Doctor - Sponsored by Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Barry's Menswear Mallow, and Neonatal Unit Cork University Maternity Hospital

I grew up in Mallow, but my family's Mayo roots means I can often be found fighting back tears on the third Sunday of September. As a big kid myself, I'm lucky enough to be able to work with children every day. I'm currently based in Cork, but I've worked in every province of Ireland. I was once ranked 52nd in the world for table quizzes. I've been a member of St. Vincent de Paul for 11 years, and I now help train new volunteers in child protection. My lifelong goal is to make it to the Eurovision final, if anyone has a spare ticket.
