Farm life is a tough vocation and although enjoyable I knew from an early age that the world of science and technology was for me.
Fast forward a few years, I am now living in Carrigaline, and I work as a scientist in Janssen, a Johnson and Johnson biological pharmaceutical company in Ringaskiddy.
I like to participate in the community. I am chairperson of the Carrigaline Tidy Towns, I am a member of the Carrigaline Community Association, and I am also a member of the Carrigaline District Lions Club.
I have had an interest in politics since I was young and I have always believed that individuals should become actively involved in the growth and development of their own community. It is my intention to get more actively involved in politics over the next number of years.
Outside of this I enjoy the cinema, an Indian/Chinese meal, heading into town, or entertaining friends. I have been known to hold a house party or two.
Carrigaline Tidy Towns is always looking for new volunteers. The group meets at 10.30am in the Owenabue carpark each Saturday morning all year round and at 7pm each evening during the summer months. They can be contacted on their Facebook page Carrigaline Tidy Towns, at email@example.com, or on 087 7817857.
