While most of us would be grateful to be born with even one talent, Veronica McCarron has been blessed with two, teaching and music. Born in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, Veronica is a BMus, Dip Mus Ed Graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music in Glasgow and University of Perth, Western Australia. She has been teaching for 43 years during which time she has taught in Scotland, Australia, the United States and now Ireland. From the moment she arrived at the Presentation Secondary School Kilkenny, her passion and enthusiasm for music captured the imagination of the students. Year after year her choirs have achieved the highest honours in some of the most prestigious competitions. But her greatest accolade is the love and appreciation of music she has nurtured in countless pupils, which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
