Favourite place to play: In the surf, the back-roads and the hill-tops. All around Leitrim and Sligo on a board or a bike.
Not a lot of people know this about me: I almost drowned in a Fulacht Fiadh when I was 8. I slipped on a wet log and fell in. The worst part was wearing another kid’s jacket around my waist to replace my wet trousers.
Mini Bio: I’m from Roscommon, studied in Galway and lived and worked everywhere from Canada to South Korea, but was always drawn back to the west of Ireland. I have worked as a rickshaw driver, bike courier, cherry-picker, teacher and media officer, but I have finally found my true calling running adventure vacations at Wilderness Ireland.
