Wexford Rose: Emma Byrne

Wexford Rose: Emma Byrne



Hi! I’m Emma Byrne or just simply ‘Byrne’ as I’m better known as. I come from a  little place called Chapel, Clonroche in the heart of Wexford. I live with my family in a place my friends refer to as the middle of nowhere and I’d personally have to agree with them.

I’m a woman who has never been tied down to one community. I went to primary school in Courtnacuddy and then journeyed to Wexford town where I attended Loreto Secondary School. A place where life long friends were made alongside many memories and moments which won’t be easily forgotten. I am now in DCU St. Patrick’s Campus studying to be a primary school teacher. I  recently completed my first year and aspire to become a principal in the future, and maybe even open up my own little business on the side who knows.

I am an outgoing girl who has enjoyed horse riding, Irish dancing, skiing and music right throughout my life. I cannot wait for this whirlwind of an experience and I hope to make all my family, friends and, most importantly, my fellow yellow bellies proud.
