27-year-old Breda hails from Rathmore which lies in the heart of Sliabh Luachra.
Breda studied at St. Angela’s College in Sligo where she was awarded an undergraduate degree in Home Economics and Religious Education. Teaching opportunities brought her to Dublin where she also undertook a part-time MSc in Food, Health and Nutrition through University College Dublin.
Breda really enjoys experimenting in the kitchen and enjoys travelling. She has completed a number of half marathons, the Sea to Summit Adventure Race and is participating in this year's Ring of Kerry Cycle in aid of the Social Action Group (SAG).
"It is an honour to be selected to represent Kerry."
