Home Town – Leixlip Co. Kildare

Many moons ago I played soccer for my local hometown up until my mid 20s when work and injuries forced me to hang up the boots and close the door on football

After a few years of doing nothing I reintroduced myself to running and began training for the Titanic Duathlons. Finishing my first duathlon in 59 minutes I was hooked.  My first Triathlon was Lisburn Sprint in 2008, and the rest they say is history.

 

Highlight of triathlon career to date

Winning the City of Derry Triathlon and having multiple podium finishes in 2014

Completing Challenge Barcelona in 2013.  Quite possibly the hardest race race I’ve ever completed.

Winning the Lisburn Triathlon (Due to some key disqualifications) But as they say in Triathlon a scalp is a scalp

Top 10 in Athy Olympic this year.

 

Aspirations

Chase NS points in 2015 and see if I can go one better in my age group

 

Favourite race

Has to be the Mourne Castelwellan Triathlon…..  Never seen such a well organized race J

A close second is TriAthy, great race and love the buzz of the whole town.

 

Other interests (make it interesting…!)

Life outside triathlon doesn’t exists, with the little time between training session it’s Cinema, Computers, Music, watching lots of Sci-Fi and reading. Also taking Enzo to the Lock Keepers for his scone.
