She discussed the many challenges she has faced throughout her career path but assured the students that it is never too late to follow your dream and that giving up should never been an option!

She is now pursuing a career where she will be working in front of the camera rather than behind the scenes and she also offered the students some excellent advice on how to break into the film and TV industry.

Grainne is keen to strengthen her link with the College and understands the important role that she can play in using her experience to inspire the young people within the local area.
