As an outdoor enthusiast, I had a spoilt upbringing as I grew up in Killarney where the 22,000-hectare Killarney National Park was literally my very own backyard.
I spent my youth out hiking, cycling, and boating in the park. Some years later, I went into ‘exile’ to Cork city for work. I was happy enough in Cork but something was always missing and it was photography that re-awakened my love of the great outdoors – and then it dawned on me what all these poets were on about.
Favourite place to play
Anywhere outdoors either on the hills or some of those wonderful beaches we have on the west coast of Ireland. My favourite places are Dingle, Connemara, and of course Killarney (in particular the outback of Killarney).
A stroll on Dinis Island or Inch beach is always good for the soul. As long as I can feel the fresh Atlantic air on my face, I’m a happy guy.
Not a lot people know this
I absolutely love a good storm.
