    I moved from Meath to Sligo in 2018 with my wife and two girls, now living in Rosses Point with our dog Manni.

    I rediscovered swimming later in life, and took lessons to learn proper technique – best money I ever spent. I believe swimming is such a valuable life skill that everyone should have, for all the physical and mental wellbeing it offers, and I began teaching in 2019 which I’ve got great enjoyment and satisfaction from.

    I swim in the sea all year round (I love the buzz from the cold water in winter!) and I get awful cranky if I go more than a couple of days without it. In a past life I lived in Vietnam for 2 years teaching English to schoolchildren, so it’s great to be teaching again, this time from the pool deck.

    I teach on Thursdays & Fridays.

    My sporting qualifications include:

    Swim Ireland Level 1 Assistant Swimming Teacher
