Hi, my name is Clíodhna and I'll be looking after you in Maynooth. I have lived close to Maynooth for my whole life. I am a graduate from Maynooth University with a degree in History and Accounting. I love to travel and have been to the U.S. and most of Europe. I have been working with study abroad groups in both Maynooth and Dublin since the beginning of 2018. I will be helping you to settle into the university here and will show you a lot of Ireland and Irish culture. I can't wait to meet you and welcome you to my home university and to Ireland!

The Resident Director provides academic advice, introduces you to the community and handles communication with the University.

AIFS Campus Staff with First Aid Training

Because health and safety are top priorities at AIFS, at least one member of the staff at this campus has taken a first aid course in order to be available to help any student until a doctor or nurse can provide help. This is just one of many services that we provide to our students.
