Dundalk based reporter following the league since Monaghan United’s goalless draw against Athlone Town in 1996. Live Updater in 2015 and 2016 as well as providing many Under 17 and Under 19 match reports and sections for the ET Sportscast. Since 2017 I’ve been continuing the underage reports and some interviews on the podcast.

This year I’ve concentrated my efforts on producing a series of articles with many personalities throughout the league and beyond to promote the importance of continuing education while developing a soccer career. This is an ongoing project!

By day I’m a primary school teacher while I also contribute to the Dundalk FC Matchday Magazine and have a major interest in statistics. (Moreso those of an unusual makeup)
