Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


AGE: 22
HEIGHT: 5’ 9”
LANGUAGE: Irish, English, French

Lisa Madden was born on August 27, 1992. She is the eldest child of a family of two. She is a country girl, having spent all of her childhood helping out on her grandparent’s farm next door. She has a large extended family living in the neighbourhood, and was blessed growing up in a very rural, tight-knit community.

All of Lisa’s primary education was conducted through Irish. This has given her a great love for her native dance, music and traditions.

Lisa is currently a third year Dentistry student in University College Cork. She has a huge interest in the elderly and enjoys visiting her local nursing home on a regular basis, since she was 16. She knows that her future career will see her working in the caring profession, preferably in the area of geriatrics.
Since her teenage years, Lisa has had a huge interest in modelling and has been on both a national and international modelling tv show. She feels very fortunate for these opportunities and in an effort to ‘give something back’; she has visited girl’s schools to speak on issues such as self- belief, confidence and determination.

Coming from a sporting family (both her father and grandfather played international rugby), Lisa has always had a huge interest in sport. She represented her school at a national level in athletics, and enjoyed playing gaelic football as a young girl. In the past year she completed two marathons, fund raising for two local children’s charities. In recent years, she enjoys cycling and golf as well as socializing with her large circle of friends.

1. Lisa loves new experiences and has travelled extensively. She has lived in both London and Germany, where she worked in a maternity hospital.
2. She sleep talks, but only in her native language, Irish.
3. She spent a summer crewing on a boat in the Greek Islands.
