So this is it. An blog deireanach. I’m finding it quite hard to believe that this is the end of my year as one of the three Michaela Foundation Scholars. No amount of words, or clichés could begin to help me sum up how humbled I am to have been given this incredible opportunity as […]

“A little sand between your toes to take away your woes.”

2nd September 2015 Caoimhe O'Hagan

“A little sand between your toes to take away your woes.” Certainly sums up the fantastic ten days I had in Donegal with my friends and family. Anyone who knows me knows that if I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to Maghery. The must humbly beautiful place. I couldn’t think of […]

12th August 2015 Caoimhe O'Hagan

Truly blessed are words that spring to mind when I reflect on the past month. To pick up on last months blog I had one camp completed already in Castlewellen and had just began my week down in the beautiful Glencull where I was a member of the Fáilte team. I am so lucky to […]

Be the good!

13th July 2015 Caoimhe O'Hagan

To say I am on cloud nine would be an understatement! It’s been another jam-packed, super-busy month for me. I have found it almost impossible to find a moment to sit down and make a start to this month’s blog. I was busy from the word go, spending the first afternoon of my summer holidays […]

Have an attitude of gratitude.

26th May 2015 Caoimhe O'Hagan

The month of May, the month of Our Lady, a month I hold very dear to my heart. As a past pupil of Our Lady’s and having visited the very special Medjugorje last summer, I have experienced a true presence of Our Lady in my life and have a very strong faith and comfort in […]

Be with those who bring out the best in you.

27th April 2015 Caoimhe O'Hagan

After my highly anticipated skydive last month you would think I enjoyed three relaxing weeks at home before returning to QUB this week…… Me? Relax? Definitely not!! What a manic Easter break I have had. Since moving to Belfast in September I have found it quite hard to keep on top of everything; whether it’s […]

24th April 2015 Sarah Allan

APRIL BLOG Firstly, CATCH UP TIME! Since I was last speaking to you my momma had a very special birthday! We had the best time celebrating, and she was surprised by my secretly very sentimental Daddy when he flew my two older brothers Seán and Eoin (and their other halves) home for the weekend! It […]

My leap of faith!

30th March 2015 Caoimhe O'Hagan

From bumping into the Irish rugby team in Dublin airport, to jumping out of a plane 13,000ft from the ground less than 48 hours later, I think the term “March Madness” would be suffice. On Saturday, 21st March, I took to the sky at the Wildgeese Skydive Centre in Garvagh in aid of the Michaela […]

23rd December 2014 Caoimhe O'Hagan

Feet up in front of the fire, writing my final blog of 2014. First semester, that’s a wrap! There really is no place like home at Christmas time. After a jam-packed 13 weeks in QUB it’s safe to say I am delighted to be back home for a few weeks with the O’Hagan clan. My […]

Belfast has been a roller coaster of emotions

1st December 2014 Caoimhe O'Hagan

I’m so excited to be writing my first blog of this new chapter. I have been volunteering for the Michaela Foundation for over two years now so it is a privilege to be one of this year’s scholars! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my first year at Queen’s than representing an […]
