Hey, I’m Niall… Dear student, My name is Niall Harty, I’m 24 years old and I’m a proud Limerick man. I’m a recent BSc. Eng (Hons) graduate in Manufacturing Engineering Management. I am running for ITTSU President. My friends would describe me as very friendly, enthusiastic, commied and very approachable. I have many interests and hobbies which include rugby, MMA, music etc. I, like a lot of students, have had an impeccable student experience here at ITT. I account this to the great job done by previous SU members, both academically and socially. I have been through quite a lot in this Institute and I am well equipped to deal with anything. I am currently the Vice President/Education Officer and I have been an avid student activist for the past 6 years. I have been involved in student politics since I started in ITT and have been a Class Rep’ most of my way through college. I have always loved dealing in student affairs. As a student who received the maintenance grant, I truly understand the importance of it, as I would not be here today without it. I will continue to fight for your grant, and fight against fees. In times like this you need a strong leader who will take you forward next year and I believe I can be that person. I can guarantee 100% commitment, and I will pour my heart and soul into this position, I will be freely available to answer any question regarding my manifesto. Bye for now,

Niall Harty.
