Hi my name is Niamh
I was raised in Kilcoole, County Wicklow, and four years ago, put down my own roots there with my partner, Jonny, when we bought a house around the corner from where I grew up.
I work part-time in a Hotel Software Company, iHotelligence in Kilcoole, and am back at the gym 3-4 times a week, which is a massive help mentally and physically. It is my little escape where I can forget I was ever sick. I also love getting out for walks in the fresh air and enjoying the amazing surroundings on my doorstep. Not taking them for granted anymore!
I have three sisters and consider myself very lucky to have a close relationship with them and my parents. Jonny, my sisters, parents and close circle of friends keep me going. Without these amazing people in my life, I would not be who I am today.
I wrote this blog to highlight the effects cancer and treatment can have on mental health, for people who have been on this journey; to highlight what happens when treatment is finished!
