Claire Howlin, Forest Management Planner

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

English, Irish, Maths, Biology, Economics, Business and German. They have not influenced my career path in any way. Back then I was told to do either nursing or computer programming by the career guidance counsellor as demand was at a high for these careers at the time. Even though we took aptitude and personality tests they were not really considered.

Tom Tooher, Lieutenant - Army

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

History, especially military history, hugely affected my career path. Although my Masters Degree in agriculture isn't exactly linked to my career.

Peter Clifford, Probationer Garda

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I did Geography, Business studies and German in school. To be honest these subjects didn’t have an influence as I had always wanted to be a Garda. At least now I can speak a few words of German if needed.
