A Mini Bio
Music and the outdoors are my big obsessions. I grew up in Dublin but I took every opportunity to get out into the hills. The mountains of Wicklow provided endless options for hiking and biking, leading small groups of friends in the hills since my teens.
I worked in IT for over twenty years before taking a sabbatical in 2011 to go travelling for a year. Upon returning, I quit in 2013 and moved to the west coast for a change – which turned out to be the best decision I ever made. I’ve been working as a guide since 2016, and now live in Sligo, get to cycle its back roads, walk its hills, swim at its beaches, and play music with a bunch of good friends.
Favourite Place to Play
For music, it would be Ellen’s Pub in Maugherow, Co Sligo on a Friday night. For the outdoors, I’m happy at any one of our gorgeous beaches along the west coast and Wild Atlantic Way.
Not a Lot of People Know This
Over the past few years, I’ve been learning to play the Gaelic Harp, or Clársach, the ancient instrument of Ireland (similar to the ‘Brian Boru’ harp in Trinity College).
