After 17 years abroad, Eimear decided to return to Ireland in 2021 and undertook a HDip in Software Design & Development in NUI Galway. She is due to graduate in August 2022. As part of her HDip, Eimear undergos a 6-month work placement and for this we are delighted she chose Channel Mechanics. She also holds a diploma in Spanish from her trips to South and Central America. While it is obvious Eimear is passionate about travel, the pandemic has put a hold on her plans.
A sports fanatic, Eimear is an avid follower of both rugby and GAA. She played camogie and gaelic football throughout her time in London, as well as rowing Cornish pilot gigs on the Thames and the south coast of England. She also enjoys hiking and skiing.
