So firstly, I’ll get the major issue out of the way, the rumours are true, I’m a proud Leitrim man. However, unless Leitrim take a dramatic rise in the national league or the Rossies plummet we shouldn't have too many disagreements.
My first real interest in sport dates back to my early childhood, when I would listen to games on the radio with my grandfather who was a huge kerry supporter. It was this early exposure to the sport that developed my interest and I have represented my local club Carrigallen at underage and now at senior level. It was while helping with the local U16 team that I got my first taste of coaching and from that my career has taken off.
During my time completing my BSc in Sports Strength and Conditioning in LIT, I have been lucky enough to be exposed to every side of the fitness industry. I have been privileged to work with a number of GAA teams including Leitrim and Longford county teams and also top club teams within these counties. I have also had the opportunity to work closely with League of Ireland and english Championship soccer players and League of Ireland referees in a one-to-one basis.
It is with this background and knowledge that I look forward to working closely with and helping every single one of you on your fitness journey.
I hope to get a chance to meet you all over the next few weeks and don’t be afraid to approach me with any questions or queries you may have. On a side note, those of you approaching with fresh coffee will get first preference.
