'I miss family but life is good'

KEVIN Power (26) from the class of 1996 is a qualified carpenter. He emigrated to Melbourne in November 2011 with his girlfriend Elaine Meehan, from nearby Ballyduff, who graduated from UCC with a degree in health research.

Both have secured sponsors in Australia, are working full-time in their chosen fields, and have committed to at least another three years.

"There was a bit of sadness but a bit of excitement as well when we made the decision to go," said Kevin. "I miss my family but I also wanted to see a bit of the world." And life is good in the capital of Victoria.

"Eventually, I would like to settle in Ireland but you can never say for definite, and at the moment, I'm not getting too much positivity about coming back."
