Grainne is a 24 year old nurse from Buncrana, Donegal. After graduating from University with honours and a Bachelor of Science degree she became a nurse specialising in women’s health.
Grainne enjoys volunteering, reading, working out, and swimming in open water. She feels there is nothing more refreshing than jumping into the brisk Irish Sea; it is her earliest and most favourite childhood memory. Proving she is a fearless, yet social conscious female, Grainne went skydiving at 20,000 feet at the Donegal airport to help raise funds for the Alzheimer’s society of Ireland. Additionally, she held an event in her ward in Letterkenny, Donegal selling morning smoothies to raise money for a medical centre. She has dedicated much of her time helping others near and far including traveling to Boston to work with the homeless and running a 10k to raise funding for her local women’s centre. Her colleagues nominated her to go on BBC’s Great British Menu where she tasted food and to give special thanks to all the medical staff on the front line.
