Originally from the west of Ireland, I moved to Scotland in late 2004, to work within the renewable energy sector as an Ecologist. I have maintained this career ever since, and am now self-employed working on projects throughout Scotland. I arrived in Aberfoyle in Spring 2009, with my family and became involved with the local community cycling group, Bike Trossachs, in 2015. I have been chairman since 2017, and was invited to join the Trust as a Director in the summer of 2020. I’m really looking forward to assisting the community, in particular to become more healthy and active through recreation, and especially cycling.
