Louth Student named Student Ambassador at St Patrick’s Pontifical University, Maynooth


After a university-wide recruitment process, Eimear Faulkner from Drogheda, Co. Louth, has been appointed Student Ambassador at St Patrick’s Pontifical University, Maynooth.

Eimear is an alumnus of Our Lady’s College, Greenhills, Drogheda.

Following a successful pilot program last year, Ambassadors are a vital link for incoming students, assisting with orientation activities, arranging campus tours, and offering advice and recommendations on how best to transition from second tier to college life. Student Ambassadors will also attend University events throughout the year conveying their first-hand experiences of life at St Patrick’s.

Upon his nomination, Eimear said:

“From the moment you walk through the doors of St Patrick’s Pontifical University, you feel a sense of belonging and welcome, and I’m keen to extend that to this year’s new students. Beginning my own academic journey this year Last I was afraid I would have to do it virtually.However, it’s safe to say that all University staff have done everything possible to ensure that the warm welcome you feel on campus is appropriately transferred to line.

“A degree with St Patrick’s Pontifical University gives you the best of both worlds, studying theology on South Campus and an arts subject of your choice on North Campus with Maynooth University allows you to enjoy what both universities have to offer. For me, as I hope to have a career with An Garda Síochána, this is the perfect degree to choose.

“In my first year I studied Criminology and Irish alongside Theology and then majored in Irish and Theology. I think this degree will really help me in my future career because not only theology teaches you about different religions and beliefs, but it also teaches you about morals and ethics, why people think what they do and how to appreciate it,” she added.
