Hello my name is Saoirse McGrath, I am 23 years old and come from Skryne, a  rural parish where GAA takes centre stage and the hill of Tara is a stone’s throw away. I am in my third year of a BSc in General Nursing in DCU. Most of my training is completed in Beaumont hospital in Dublin, one of the busiest hospitals in the country. I wish to pursue a Masters and become an Advanced Nurse Practitioner specializing in cardiac care following my primary degree.

Sport is paramount in my life and I have played football and ran for Meath, and have two Leinster athletics medals in the 800m. I am running the mini marathon this year in aid of Pieta House, a charity I hold close to my heart. I am a sociable person and love meeting new people and  enjoy the company of others.

I have a passion for music and have a particular love of artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Simon and Garfunkel  .. The golden oldies! I look forward to what my year as the Meath Rose will bring! I am excited about all of the  people I will meet along the way and the memories I am about to make!
