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.

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

I loved languages in school, and continue to love them now, which I think has definitely been the biggest influence on my career. I went to an all Irish primary school, then began German in secondary school and took up Japanese in TY.

Elaine Kelly, Mechanical Design Engineer

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

My LC electives were physics, accounting and geography as these were all logical subjects without any risk of interpretation. Unfortunately, applied maths was not offered at my school and I do regret not studying it outside school. If I had studied applied maths at LC level like most of my college peers, it would have made it easier at 1st year college level.
