Meet Leitrim Rose candidate: Niamh McNamara

Niamh McNamara

My name is Niamh McNamara (20) from Arigna. I am being kindly sponsored by RJS Pharmacy’s in Drumshanbo for the Leitrim Rose selection.
I am currently studying Occupational Safety and Health through ATU Sligo whilst working in Arigna Fuels and The Barge Steakhouse Leitrim Village. I am also a qualified Nail Technician which I enjoy doing in my spare time.
I was honoured to be given the title last month of this year's ‘An Tostal Colleen’ as part of Drumshanbo's Annual An Tostal Festival and was kindly put forward to take part in this amazing experience through the committee and my fantastic sponsor, RJS Pharmacy.

We are loosing too many people who are loved by so many. It has affected too many families and communities across the country, especially in the last number of years, and this needs to change!
