Louth - Emma Barry



My name is Emma Barry and I’m a 27 year old Drogheda woman. It’s a privilege to represent the Wee County at this year’s Festival! I’ve just completed my post-primary Professional Master of Education degree in Trinity College Dublin. I’m excited to enter the workforce in September following 8 years in college, having completed BA and MPhil degrees before my PME! I consider myself a lifelong learner and am grateful for those opportunities! Football, especially at the club level, is an important part of my family's life. We have a special relationship with Stabannon Parnells GFC because of my late sister, Nicola, and her legendary performances with the club. I'm an avid baker who taught myself how to decorate intricate cakes while on lockdown. I'm a regular volunteer, especially for cancer charities, and I'm honoured to be an ambassador for Brain Tumour Ireland during my time as Louth Rose.
