Meet Emer Munnelly - Welfare Officer 2023/24

I’m Emer, a 2nd year English and Film student from County Mayo and this year's JCR Welfare Officer. First year in Halls is an amazing (and terrifying) series of firsts; living away from home, making new friends, studying in Trinity, being brought home from nights out etc (been there, done that). But with this fresh new start obviously comes some challenges but no need to panic, I am here to help!

Myself and the Welfare Team are here to guide you through all the highs and lows you may face in your first year of college; homesickness, breakups, exam stress, that daunting first essay, coming out, nights out, flatmate troubles and everything in between- nothing is too big or small! We are trained and happy to listen so never hesitate to reach out...we are just a text away!


Each house has its own Welfare Team member (aka Welfairy) assigned to it and you can chat to them about anything that is on your mind. As Welfare Officer I will also be holding office hours every week if you want to pop in for some tea and a chat. Don’t worry if you can’t attend during that two hour period, if you’re feeling down, worried by something or just want to vent at any time please contact me via Instagram: (@emer_munnelly12) or via my email (


ONE LAST THING! Make sure to follow the JCR welfare dedicated instagram page (@trinityhalljcr.welfare). Here you will find all welfare related info on a variety of topics including mental health, sexual health and of course our super fun welfare events happening in Halls throughout the year. You can also contact this page if you have a queries or questions. Below I have also listed some other useful contacts for you to avail of throughout the year.


If you are struggling at any point this year don’t hesitate to reach out, we are here for you. Hope you all settle in well, have a fab freshers week and a great year !
