Ms Barbara Cullinane is the newly appointed Deputy Permanent Representative to the European Union for Ireland. This is the latest addition in the long list of Ms Cullinane's career achievements since completing her Leaving Certificate with us in Loreto College in 1991.

Based in Brussels, the Permanent Representation of Ireland to the European Union brings together under one root civil servants from nearly every Irish Government Department, making it the State's largest diplomatic mission abroad.

It goes without saying that we are all extremely proud to be able to call Barbara one of our own, and we wish her every success in her career and future.
