Looking back on my time in Rathmines College it was a year which changed my life. I was selected for the Central Bank Bridging the Gap programme and I can’t commemorate the lecturer’s enough, they were always available and wanted the best for each student. I am now working in the Central Bank of Ireland as well as studying for a BA in Griffith College Dublin
