Hello, my name is Meghan Byrne, known to most as 'Meg'. I am a primary school teacher, living and working in the Royal County of Meath.

My parents are both from Dublin but moved to Kells just three weeks after I was born. I was only eight years of age when I made the decision to become a teacher. It's all I have ever wanted to do.

I studied for almost six years and completed my Master's in Primary Education in 2017. I started my teaching career in my current school and I received permanency a year later.

Outside of school I like strength training. I train with an amazing community of people known as Complete Body Fitness. I live the sweaty life and I have made best friends along the journey. I also love to travel when possible. If you challenge me to a Disney trivia, I'll win as I love movies and anything Disney! I also love to bake to disguise my chocolate addiction! I have a love for meditation and yoga outdoors and love to incorporate this in my school life with the children.

I am very proud to be representing Meath this year in the festival, and am really looking forward to embracing the entire experience.
