After I completed the Nursing Studies course at Greenhills College, I went on to study Intellectual Disability Nursing at the University of Limerick. Following my graduation from the University of Limerick I worked as a Nurse in a nursing home in Dundrum. I have since graduated with a Masters in Dementia Care from the University of Limerick. I owe this achievement to all your staff for encouraging me. Please pass on my thanks to all your staff and my well wishes to all the new students.
