Watch this video portrait which is the fifth in a mini series called ‘We are Dublin2020′ by Dublin2020 and Wissame Cherfi.

Niamh O'Donoghue is a 22-year-old Dubliner studying journalism.

She has a passion for traditional Irish music. Her life changed when she came back from a trip to Lourdes when she was only 13. She was diagnosed with scoliosis but she decided that this wouldn't define who she is or hold her back.

She "is 32 per cent titanium and beeps at airports", she says.

Dublin2020 commissioned the series to highlight the people and places that make Dublin unique.

Each ‘We Are Dublin2020′ video concentrates on one person, their Dublin story and the reason they love Dublin.
