I’m a fun loving farmer hailing from Wexford, the land of the Yellow Bellies. Whilst I’ve played a variety of sports growing up including hurling and rugby, my passion for animals has taken over since finishing college. Although teaching is really enjoyable, farming has always been my first love. I compete in triathlons and have taken up Irish country jiving. I also love to travel, having visited Africa, Thailand and some European cities over the past year. Above all I love my roots and my favourite place to be is on the farm in Wexford, where whatever the weather, there’s always something to be done.
