Rose of Tralee

Monaghan Rose: Hannah Mooney



My name is Hannah Mooney, I am 24 and proud to say I am from Co. Monaghan, from a small parish called Aughnamullen East in the middle of Monaghan. I have two older brothers, who sometimes act more like bouncers and it’s safe to say I’m a Daddy’s girl.  I am in my final year of Adult Nursing in Queens University, Belfast, and will soon qualify as a Registered Nurse, following in the footsteps of my mum. 

Having taken the scenic route to my Degree, I am a strong advocate for alternative pathways in further education, nothing is impossible and often the scenic route has the best views!!  Myself and my family are community focused, with music playing a huge part in our lives, as well as GAA and fitness in general. 

I believe in positive body image regardless of shape or size; fitness and health are extremely important to me on both a personal and professional level, especially in an era where young women can be fixated on their perception of the ideal body rather than health and wellbeing.   Overall, I am a very outgoing, friendly and chatty person who enjoys the simple things in life such as spending time with family and friends.
