Hi! I'm Emma Byrne, or just simply 'Byrne' as I'm better known. I come from a little place called Chapel, Clonroche in the heart of Wexford. I live with my family in a place my friends refer to as "the middle of nowhere", and I'd have to agree with them!

I'm a woman who has never been tied down to one community. I went to primary school in Courtnacuddy and then journeyed to Wexford town where I attended Loreto Secondary School. It was a place where lifelong friends were made alongside many memories and moments which won't be easily forgotten.

I am now in Dublin City University's St Patrick's Campus studying to be a primary school teacher. I recently completed my first year and aspire to become a principal in the future, and maybe even open up my own little business on the side who knows!

I am an outgoing girl who has enjoyed horse riding, Irish dancing, skiing and music right throughout my life.

I cannot wait for this whirlwind of an experience and I hope to make all my family, friends and, most importantly, my fellow Yellow Bellies proud.
