About me

I love to be active. I used to play Gaelic Football before I dislocated my shoulder and that got me into cycling, running and then swimming. Ever since you will find me on the roads or in the pool trying to improve. Outside of sport I am lucky to have a very understanding wife who knows any holidays ends up having a race, and son who entertains me on a daily basis. My day job is in IT. If I don't know the answer, google does.

My biggest achievements

Some of my biggest achievements have been getting others into running and helping them progress and go on to better things such as my brother and wife. After getting my brother into running he now has surpassed me and it is great to see where he has went with his hard work and dedication. Completing 5 marathons and 3 half ironmans have been the biggest sporting challenges and hope to add them over the next few years. This year I completed my first 10km swim.
