Enda is a graduate in Philosophy and French at University College Cork, and is currently undertaking a Masters in Philosophy at University College London.

Outside of MUN, Enda spends much of his time reading philosophy or debating, and also enjoys cycling and judo.
Quote: “I have attended CUIMUN twice as a delegate and consider myself lucky to have had the privilege to attend such an exceptional conference. I hope that in my role as a chair I can help to replicate this experience for the delegates on the HRC, and look forward to meeting you all.”

Outside of MUN he enjoys travelling, volunteering, and trekking.
Quote: “I’ve never visited Cambridge, but having heard excellent reviews of the conference from my friends, I wanted to experience it for myself first hand. I am looking forward to meeting everyone, and I will make sure the delegates have a memorable time in HRC.”
