When I tell people I grew up in Dublin, they don’t picture a single-lane road with grass in the middle and sheep grazing behind my house. I grew up following my father around the fields and learned how to reach the seaside through hidden gaps in hedges.
As a teenager, I headed west to study Outdoor Education, and for over a decade, my address changed regularly as I travelled, first throughout Ireland, then abroad, chasing adventures on far-flung peaks and down remote rivers. Now I’ve made a permanent base in the northwest of Ireland. I’m passionate about sharing my love of our beautiful country with anyone willing to share an adventure with me.
Favourite Place to Play
Of our coastal counties, Leitrim has the shortest coastline, but it packs in two rivers, a plethora of surf spots, and bouldering on the shore. The best part? All of it is overlooked by the beautiful plateau mountains of the Darty Hills. Hard to beat it, really!

I used to get my kicks from karate and competed in two world championships, winning bronze twice.
