Eva Ni Dhoibhlinn is ainm dom . I am twenty years old and I am delighted to represent the Gaeltacht as this year's Gaeltacht Mary. I am currently studying for the B' Ed in Primary School Teaching in St Pat's D.C.U in Dublin where I have recently completed my 2nd year.
I am a musician and have been playing music since I was 6 years old. I am a member of the music group An Crann óg. We sing and play Irish traditional music and song trí mheain na gaelige and do our best to promote the Irish language and culture nationally and internationally and as the Gaeltacht Mary I intend to do so throughout the festival
The Mary from Dungloe Festival has always been a major event in our family's calendar and my family in Glasgow organise their holidays around the festival every year to be here. I feel very honoured to be taking part this year and my family are so excited for me.
I am especially looking forward to meeting the other Mary's and enjoying the craic and histeria from the other side of the pavement this year. It will no doubt be an unforgettable experience where I hope to make many new and lasting friendships.
