CORK - PATRICIA COTTER

Trish is 26 and from Cobh. She loves her job as a Secondary School Teacher at St. Coleman’s Community College in Midleton.

With two siblings older and two siblings younger Trish is expecting a very large group of supporters to be in The Dome for both Selection nights! Professing total satisfaction with teaching and currently studying for a Master’s in Education this Cork Rose admits that her dress making skills have sometimes prompted her to consider a career in fashion design!

Trish’s very active social life includes playing basketball, travelling – she has visited USA, Australia, New Zealand, Bali, France, Spain and Germany – and she is a keen rugby follower, to the point where she followed the 2005 Lions Tour to New Zealand. Playing the tin whistle and reading cryptic crime novels are other ways to relax and Trish is embarking on a production with the Watergrasshill Players in the autumn. Trish has two turtles that she describes as “amazing creatures”. This Cork Rose particularly dislikes “people who have no opinions” and there is a story about maggots that, so far, she refuses to share!

Trish waxes eloquent about her town: “I love living in Cobh. Such a beautiful town; the magnificent harbour, the sea glistening in the sunshine and the breeze in winter. A town steeped in history and culture”.
