Meet Fiona, a visionary in sales and marketing! Here she is kicking back after a hard days work at the construction site. Is cailín ó Connamara í Fiona. Infamously technologically challenged, her favourite pastime is watching Game of Thrones – if only she could figure out how to download it! Fiona abú!

Meet Aoife from our sales and marketing team! Aoife comes from Cork and has a BA in English and French from UCC. She is currently balancing her postgraduate studies at NUIG with a new found and increasingly worrying addiction to Breaking Bad. Her favourite book tends to be whatever she’s reading at the moment. Here she is pictured in the traditional Galway dress.
Say hello to Mandy, a member of the sales and marketing team for ROPES! Mandy is from Florence, Texas, and earned her BA at Southwestern University. She worked in the real world for eight years before returning to school, which is the smartest decision she has ever made. She worries she will be kicked out of the MA programme, the Republic of Ireland, and the publishing industry as a whole when people find out she has never read ‘Ulysses.’ She blogs at www.TheGalwayTrain.com.
Meadhbh likes anything even resembling a girl band, over-identifying with fictional characters, and buying things she will never use, read, or wear. She can usually be found in the NUIG library, surfing Tumblr and idly wondering if it’s too late to change her essay title again. Alternatively, try local coffee shops, where she’ll be sneakily adding another sugar to her obnoxiously large coffee when she thinks no-one’s looking.
Shauna is a member of the ROPES editorial team and the coordinator of our upcoming MALP board game night. She is also the one who introduced ROPES to Jigsaw – and we are so very glad she did! Shauna is from Dublin and completed her undergrad degree at UCD. She likes good food, terrible pop songs, Brew Dog beers, and Oxford commas.
Emma, pictured here hunting for the Deathly Hallows, is a member of the ROPES editorial team. She interns for Cúirt International Festival of Literature and writes for ‘The Daily Shift’ website. She is from Longford and completed her undergrad in English and Psychology at NUIG. Even after all her education, Emma’s favourite writers are still JK Rowling and Roald Dahl. Emma loves films, music and procrastinating.
Here’s our Katy, who is such a social butterfly we had trouble finding a photo of just herself. She is from Galway – Oughterard to be exact – and loves films. She is a member of the ROPES editorial team, serves as the MALP class representative, and has just begun an internship with Cúirt International Festival of Literature. Her favourite book is ‘Rebecca’ by Daphne du Maurier. Katy keeps a blog over at whatkatythoughtnext.tumblr.com.
