I dedicated a lot of my spare time to the Hockey Club in Maynooth. I was a member of the committee for four years and really enjoyed spending time with the team and organising the training and trips to various competitions. The numbers were very low when I started and gradually grew over the years, it was wonderful to be part of and watch as the club continues to grow since I graduated!

Aside from the obvious skills I learned specific to the subjects I chose, the key skills I developed while at Maynooth included:
-Problem solving
-Time management
-Research skills
-Interpersonal skills
I now use these skills in both my professional and personal life.
