Dairy Farmer - Sponsored by E J MenswearAurivo and The Glasshouse Hotel

I am a dairy farmer from Sligo and a qualified veterinary nurse. I’m easy going and always up for an adventure. This love of adventure led me to visit Sydney, Australia, where I worked in an equine veterinary clinic and on a stud farm for two years. During my time in Melbourne, I worked on a thousand cow dairy farm which was a great experience, before arriving home to work on the family farm. I’m a keen sportsperson, playing football and hurling for my club Coolera/Strandhill. I have a keen interest in horse racing and attend race meetings when possible.
