Place to play
The Burren in Clare or the 12 Pins mountain range in Connemara. I love them both, but if hard pressed to choose, I think Connemara would be the winner.

People think I’m over 6 feet tall but I’m actually only 5 feet 16 inches ;-)
I have loved Ireland’s wild places since I was first introduced to them in the scouts as a teenager and I have been exploring and enjoying the Irish wilderness ever since then. My first experience of guiding or leading others in the outdoors was as a scout leader where I realised that I enjoyed introducing others to the environment that I knew and loved as much as I enjoyed exploring it myself. Since then, I have been leading, guiding and instructing in the great Irish outdoors with youth groups, the Irish Defence Forces and as a wilderness guide.
