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

Subjects such as Business, English and Maths are very important for forestry. Science subjects and IT would also give you a good advantage particularly when studying forestry in college.

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

Outside of the mandatory subjects, I studied Business, Economics, Agri Science and German. They were 100% great help in getting where I am today. Agri Science was quite a random choice, but I thought it was but an interesting one, and I loved it. If was to go back and take the Leaving Cert again I would probably choose all the same subjects!

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

I needed to chose a second language besides Gaeilge in order to get into St. Patrick's College in Drumcondra. I decided to study French.
