The Institute of Technology Tallaght have voted for an all-female Students' Union for the first time since 2003.
The election saw the three full time positions filled by Jessica Wall as President, Shauna Homan as Welfare Officer and Aisling Cusack as Education Officer.
 
Wall was elected as the newest SU President in what could be argued as the closest presidential race ITT has even seen, winning by the minute margin of 7 votes.
 
Speaking to Campus.ie, Jessica reveals that she felt "honoured" to be elected.  "It's really hard to believe, I still can't get my head around it," she said laughing.
 
While Jessica wants to introduce more on-campus events and themed nights, one of the main points of her campaign was to create a ITTSU montly E-mag.
 
"I want to create and incorporate all my manifesto within this magazine," she explains. "Through this magazine we can create more awareness for society events and trips and also create more engagement with the Students' Union," she added.
 
It seems that the girl's have formed a close bond already, having been in the same business management course since first year.
 
"We've known each other for the last four years and we've played on the college's GAA team, so we get on really well," Aisling Cusack explained.
 
Cusack also admitted that she was, "over the moon," with the result. "I wasn't expecting it at all," she added.
 
Aisling's main points of her manifesto was to introduce LinkedIn workshops so that students can create effective online profiles, alongside restructuring the election system of class reps.
 
"I want to emphasise the importance of electing a student that will represent your class to the best of their ability," she explained.
 
Some of Shauna Homan's main points of her campaign included to increase awareness of mental health services available to students such as Niteline and to introduce an ASIST course to educate students in dealing with suicide.
 
Speaking to Campus.ie Karen Campbell, the current Welfare Officer of ITT explained that she was delighted that so many young women ran for positions this year.
 
"As the current Welfare Officer at IT Tallaght and the only female representative, I’m delighted to see so many young women running for elections and I wish them the very best of luck in the up and coming year."
 
They will begin their term of office on July 1st.
