A Mini Bio
From my earliest memories, I have been drawn to exploring the remote, the wild and the isolated. Sharing these places with others on foot or bike brings me the greatest joy. The change of seasons, the abundance of nature, the sun, the wind and the rain are my oxygen. Hidden valleys, stone walls and ancient roads race in my blood. A quiet pint, fresh crab claws, a beautiful ballad or a story well told feed my soul.
I have been fortunate to have walked, cycled and explored much of Europe’s most amazing backdrops but I am always drawn back to the wilds of Ireland. As a child and later as a parent its extraordinary landscape, history and culture have kept me nurtured.
I am lucky to have been able to share these experiences with family and friends for many years. Mountain biking steep slopes, cycling remote roads, climbing a mountain or paddling an estuary, always so much to do.
Favourite Place to Play
Sheep’s Head and the Beara Peninsulas in West Cork are very, very special to me.
