Sligo Mary

Saoirse Doherty

Sponsored by Solis Lough Eske castle Hotel.

 

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.
