The 21-year-old from Clontarf, Dublin answered questions as her medal was passed around for the children to admire. She told us of her typical day and of how proud she was of her achievements. She delighted some of the older listeners relaying her story of how she out swam rugby player Rob Kearney in a pool challenge!
After being asked by one of the children how she fulfills tasks such as tying her shoe laces, Ellen demonstrated how simple it is despite some people's preconceptions, which fascinated some of our younger children!
She truly is an inspiration and proof that hard work and determination can really pay off. Thanks for coming to visit us, Ellen!
