Faculty Convenor for Arts, Humanities and Social Science
I'm Sinéad Leydon, the Faculty Convenor for Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. It's my job to coordinate the Class Reps and School Convenors in the AHSS Faculty. I also sit on University Council and represent the interests of students in my faculty to College. The Faculty Convenor also liaises with the Dean of the faculty, Prof. Michael Marsh, to discuss any problems arising. I also attend the Faculty Executive meetings for this reason.

Faculty Convenor for Engineering, Mathematics and Science
Hi guys my name is Eric Tebay. My job as EMS faculty convenor is to represent every student studying any form of engineering, maths or science. If you study in the Hamilton or any of the buildings down that end of college bets are I represent you. I meet with your class reps and senior academics on a regular basis, so if you have any problems big or small social or academic give me an email or just stop me in the Hamilton and I'll do my best to sort it.
Faculty Convenor for Health Science
Hey all! I’m Seán, your Faculty Convenor for Health Sciences, and I’m in 4th Med. College is one of the best times of your life, and I want to keep it that way! Just like each class has class reps, the reps have their own rep, me! I sit on the Faculty Committee, and watch out for your interests at the highest level within the faculty. We HS students have very different experiences and issues in college that other students may not understand, so I’m here to worry about those things you shouldn’t have to. If your class rep or school convenor needs some backup, or advice on how best to pursue something, I am here. If you don’t have a class rep or they can’t help you, give me a shout! Remember, my job is based around what you and your reps ask of me, so I’m all ears! Oh, and we’ll be putting together some events over the year, get involved, email me, and there’ll be even more fun to be had!

Oifigeach na Gaeilge
Niamh Ní Chronín
Dia Daoibh! I'm Niamh, your Irish Officer. If you have any Irish-related issue, I'm your person.
From representing all you Gaelgoirí at council meetings, to organising events where you can use your cúpla focal, I'll be working tirelessly all year on your behalf.
Ceist ar bith? You can drop me an email, aon am, or better yet, come along to some of the events I will be organising with the Cumann Gaelach and we'll have the craic!
Finance and Services Officer
Hi guys! My name is Jack and I'm the SU's finance and services officer. I'm 20, from Dublin, and am in my third year of studying English Literature and History. You'll also see me writing and sub-editing for the Union's newspaper The University Times and doingthe odd job with DU History and TrinityTV.
My role involves reporting to SU Council on the Union's finances, organising deals and workshops to help you survive the financial pressures of College, and making sure the Union's services are run correctly. When required, I sit on the interview board for jobs in the Bookshop, the JCR Café, or with the Meet and Greet service. I work most closely with the Welfare Officer and the President.
Last, I'll be in constant interaction with the various services that College provides to help organise CV workshops as well as internships and careers fairs to ensure that you leave College with the skills that the economy desperately needs.
If you have any questions or suggestions, or need a hand with financial planning, please get in touch..
Assistant Campaigns Officer
Hiya lads, my name's Lylas and I'll be your Assistant Campaigns Officer for the coming year. Basically this involves helping Rory and the rest of the sabbatical team with any campaigns they may be running, from fees to the library and far more besides. If you strongly feel that we should spend more time campaigning about a particular issue or would like to help out with any of the campaigns we're running (with new ideas, new approaches or just to increase numbers, any help is always appreciated!), give me a shout. Have a great year, look forward to hearing from you!
The Technical Officer has the remit within the Union, of looking after the IT needs of the SU. Conor Smith is the Technical Officer. Due to the nature of the job, the Technical Officer is not necessarily a member of the Students' Union. Perhaps the main part of Conor's job is the designing and maintenance of this website.
Simon Evans has been the Administrative Officer of the SU for longer than anyone cares to remember. Simon provides for continuity within the Union by providing for the Sabbatical Officers during their crossover and throughout their year. The Administrative Officer is one of the co-treasurers of the Union and has an important role managing the Students' Union accounts. Simon also helps out with the organisation of SU Council.
