Name: Grainne Dooley
Degree: BA (1991) Business & Economics

What are you doing with yourself these days?
I’m currently a Bond Portfolio Manager.

Why did you choose your current career?
I have always enjoyed finance and economics and this job allows me to pursue those interests.
How do you like to spend your free time?
I enjoy sports, the arts in general and spending time with family and friends.

What are your strongest memories of Trinity?
Coffee on the chocolate boxes in the Arts Block, the Luce sports hall, the wonder of walking into a relative oasis of calm in the city centre…and many more.

Are you still in touch with other alumni?
Yes, four of my sisters also went to Trinity, so we have a reasonably extensive network!

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
Always a tough question but would probably like to be working in a more public policy oriented role within finance.
