I started in Coláiste Abbáin in 2006. I remember walking through the front gates I was nervous and scared yet full of anticipation and excitement for what lay ahead. Little did 12 year old me know that I would feel those same emotions almost 11 years later as I walked back through the gates of Coláiste Abbáin, only this time I wasn’t the student - I was the Art Teacher! 

My love for art was nurtured in Coláiste Abbáin. The art room was my haven and the wonderful Ms. Byrne was so encouraging. She always motivated me to try my best and to challenge and enlighten my creativity. Whenever I’m asked about school I always seem to end up talking about the strength and support the school community had and I’m proud to say I have seen it is still as strong as ever! I finished school in 2011 but the influence and support didn’t end there. That September I began studying Graphic Design in Waterford Institute of Technology and I graduated in 2015. I practiced as a freelance graphic designer and some smaller art projects for myself, but I always felt I wanted to bring my studies further.


In 2016 I started in Limerick School of Art and Design where I studied a Masters in Art and Design Education with digital media. I returned to the school gate while on teaching practice, full of the same nerves and anticipation. It was wonderful to be allowed back to experience a different side of the classroom. At the moment I’m happily living in Limerick City and in November I will officially graduate as an art teacher. I hope that wherever this career into teaching art takes me the influence of Coláiste Abbáin will always be on my side.




A reminder that our Christmas Craft Fair will take place on Thursday the 6th December from 6-9pm. Entry is free and Santa's Grotto only costs €3. This is a great opportunity to stock up for the festive season.
