Grainne Gallanagh Makes History For Ireland
Grainne, a 24 year old nurse from Buncrana, Donegal graduated from University with honours and a Bachelor of Science degree . She is a nurse specialising in women’s health.
Grainne is particularly passionate about women’s issues and women’s health. She says “Women face significant barriers to both mental and physical health. Women face poorer health than men due to economic disadvantage, discrimination, pregnancy, their caring roles, as well as higher rates of sexual assault and domestic violence. This must change.” As Miss Universe Ireland 2018 she is determined to utilize her platform and her profession as a nurse to help raise awareness, bring more resources to women, and provide more education on women’s health issues.
