First Exciting Radio Gig: East Coast FM in Ireland. It is a great station just south of Dublin and it's where it all began for me aged 15.

Hobbies: I love to play golf, darts, soccer but most of all rugby is my passion. I also write a lot of music, poetry and comedy.

Guilty Pleasure Music: I love so much music that really it's hard to say one guilty pleasure, I am a huge fan of songs with meaningful lyrics so basically anything that doesn't rhyme love with above haha.

Secret Passion: Airplanes. Airplanes. Airplanes.............. I just love them.

Secret Fantasy: hmmmm, how to answer this section. I guess in a weird way I kinda wanna be on a plane and for someone to shout "hey does anyone know how to land this".... but then again, I definitely never wanna be in that position.

Name The One Gadget You Can't Live Without: Well right now it's my phone because I can talk to my family back home in Ireland but if they lived closer I would gladly throw my phone into a river.


Favorite Sports Teams: Irish Rugby Team.... hands down. I also love the Fighting Irish and am a big fan of the Dublin GAA team (google it :)
