my name is Saoirse Doherty and I am twenty years old. I'm from Letterkenny. I have previously studied health science and physiology in Sligo IT, where I made amazing memories and friends from all over Ireland. At the minute I am studying business marketing in Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
I am also working two part time jobs, as I love to keep my self busy. During the week I work in Philips Medisize which is a company that produces medical devices for hospitals and at the weekend I work in Homebase Letterkenny. People may think I'm crazy being a full time student with two jobs but I am lucky to have found two jobs that I am happy in and have lots of friends in both.
My busy life makes it hard for me too sqeeze in my hobbies but Rugby is a sport that I will always find time for, I've been playing on and off for eight years now as it was always very hard to find a group of girls that were willing to play. I have recently got a car on the road and every chance I get I jump in my car and drive around all our beautiful tourist attractions across the wild Atlantic way.
When I finish college in two years time I hope to travel and gain lifetime experiences. I'm really excited about taking part in the Mary from Dungloe Festival as I know that I will get the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. I hope that I will make my family proud and I am honoured to be the Sligo Mary.
