2018 LC

The 2018 Dublin Local Committee Members:

Kerrie Drum- LC President

My name is Kerrie Drum and I am studying a Masters in Biomedical Engineering in UCD. I decided to join the IAESTE Ireland LC because I did an internship in Tunisia in the summer of 2016, and I saw how enjoyable a traineeship could be, as a result of the LC’s involvement. I want to make sure that the students who come to Ireland have an exciting and worthwhile experience just like I did!

Edwin Henry- LC Connect Coordinator

My name is Edwin Henry and I am studying Chemical Engineering in UCD. During my IAESTE internship in Chine the Chinese local committee were a big help and made my stay in China much more enjoyable. I joined the IAESTE Ireland Local Committee as I wanted to help international interns coming to Ireland have an enjoyable time while also meeting new people from across the world.

Sean Dempey

Hi I’m Sean I’m a final year chemistry student in UCD. Last summer I had the amazing opportunity to complete an IAESTE internship in Brazil. This made me want to get involved in the local committee here in Ireland as I know how important the Local Committee is to your IAESTE experience!

Niamh Fahy

My name is Niamh Fahy and I am studying Mechanical Engineering in DIT. I went on an IAETSE internship to Croatia in the summer of 2016. It was one of the best experiences of my life and the people I met there were incredible. I was inspired by Croatia’s Local Committee to join the Ireland’s Local Committee because they were so welcoming and I truly made great friends with them, so I thought the same could apply to Ireland!
