Jamie Flannery
Primary school teacher

I’m an enthusiastic, ambitious, open-minded and courteous Gaelgóir from Dingle. I enjoy being on stage and have been part of Siamsa Tíre the National Folk Theatre since the age of six performing through the medium of Irish dance, song and drama. I am a primary school teacher working in Gaelscoil Charraig Uí Léighin in Cork and thoroughly enjoy every day because I can bring my own personality to the classroom whilst teaching through Irish. Throughout my years in UCD, I promoted the Irish language through organising events with Bord na Gaeilge UCD. I have a real interest in charity work and have spent time teaching with the charity UCD Volunteer Overseas in both Tanzania and Haiti.
