As 2017 College Captain, Niamh inspired us with her unassuming leadership, thoughtful observations and "cut-through" communication.
So we were not surprised, but very proud to see her contribution to Q&A last night.

We invite you to contribute to the social media responses to Niamh’s impressive appearance on Q&A.
