Hey, how’re things? My name is Martin Scally and I’m you Students’ Union president for the coming year. I’m from Clonakilty in West Cork, and will be graduating with a degree in Commerce in October. I play GAA and enjoy eating, napping and long walks on the beach.
My main roles are leading and managing the Students’ Union team throughout the year and ensure that we all do our utmost to give each and every student the best experience and most beneficial time in UCC.
I represent the students on many different committees and boards of directors, so to make sure students always have a voice, and your needs and wants are adhered to as much as possible. I want to make sure that all students enjoy their time in UCC as much as possible. To ensure I’m representing you as best I can, if ye have any thoughts make sure to let me know so I can have them brought to the University’s attention.
I represent the students in the media if there are any issues arising. I am here to represent you, the student, to the best of my ability and will always back the students. In my only similarity to Trump I don’t associate with CNN and their views on UCC students, it’s all fake news.
I am in control of the finances of the Students’ Union, and before you ask, yes I always had that helicopter before I took this job, that is just a coincidence. We will make sure that we run great events of various magnitudes ranging from entertainment and education to welfare and informative.
From a personal point of view, I really want to express how proud I am to represent you all, and that I will do everything to the best of my ability throughout the year. I would love if people got onto me about different thoughts and ideas they have for the year, or even get onto me just for a chat about anything and everything. Feel free to give me a call/email or call up to the office, or better yet just chat to me on campus.
On behalf of myself, Poodles, Tadhg, Kelly, Big Bad Barry and Ben, we wish you all the best for the year and we hope to serve ye as best we can.
