Dia dhaoibh! My name is Mary O’Donnell and I am the President of UCC Societies for the 2021/22 academic year. I have a BA in Music and Geography, a BMus, and (hopefully soon!!) an MA in Arts Management and Creative Producing. Throughout my studies I have been heavily involved in UCC Societies, having worked as Secretary, Chairperson and Vice-Finance of UCC TradSoc, as well as Secretary & Alumni Officer and Vice-President, Events & Education Officer of the Societies Executive.
My role as President of UCC Societies is to oversee the running of over 100 societies here in UCC covering a vast array of interests. We have a range of academic societies, as well as activist and political groups, creative and performing arts groups, cultural societies, and many more. All of our societies are run by students for students, so you’ll definitely be able to meet some like-minded people and make new friends, as well as gain new skills and opportunities.
Within the SU Executive, my role is to represent UCC Societies and be a voice for us when it comes to decisions made by the union. If you’re involved in a society and would like an idea or issue raised with the SU, please contact me! You can also contact me with any questions you might have about UCC Societies in general, or call ip to my office in the Clubs & Socs space on the 1st floor of the Hub!
