Sophie Ryan


Sophie is a harp player from Laois and is a past student of Sacred Heart Secondary School, Tullamore. Sophie was awarded a Quercus Creative & Performing Arts Scholarship and is studying a BA in Music and Irish at UCC. Sophie began playing music with her local CCÉ branch, competing regularly in Fleadhanna Ceoil and attending traditional music festivals and workshops around the country. Sophie now plays with CCÉ Croabh Seán Ryan, a newly formed branch in Laois set up in memory of her Grandfather, where she teaches regularly. During her time in Secondary school, Sophie was part of the school choir and performed throughout the country and abroad, winning awards at Sligo Choral Festival, Feis Ceoil, Feis Maitiú, and in the Eisteddfod in Wales. Sophie has worked with notable Irish composers such as Ryan Molloy, Ernestine Healy, Michael Rooney, and Martin Tourish, in various composition projects and commissioned works as part of Laois Music Generation Trad Orchestra. In 2018, Sophie performed in the National Concert Hall in the Siansa Gael Linn competition. After college, Sophie would love to continue teaching and performing and hopes to be part of initiatives that help make music more inclusive to everyone. Sophie is really looking forward to the coming years in UCC and getting involved in all the musical opportunities UCC has to offer. (Credit: UCC Members profile)
