Ive been interested in rally from a young age when i used to go to local events with my uncle. I started completing when I was 17. For a couple of years I kept to local events to build up experience. From there I spent the following number of years doing the Irish national championship, and Irish gravel events. Moving on and up to Ireland’s premier series, the Tarmac championship, during this period I done a number of events outside Ireland in the uk and Europe. In recent years I’ve got the chance to rally in America.
