Jason O’Byrne
Pharmaceutical Scientist

From Wicklow, I am the youngest in my family and have one older brother. I studied Environmental Science and Health in DCU. I am currently one of three singing butchers on an Irish advertisement for Bradys Family Ham. I am a runner and triathlete, and am training to complete my first Ironman, and to compete for my country over the gruelling distance. I have previously represented my country in the world mountain running championships in Switzerland. I play the tin whistle, bodhran, cajon and sing in a two piece band called Addicted to Craic. There is nothing better than having a pint of Guinness with good company, a fire lighting and a sing-song on the go.
