RIVER :

The Suir. It flows through my home city, and I see it every day on my travels. It has been the life-source of the city since it was first founded, over 1100 years ago.

FAVOURITE QUOTE :

“If something is worth doing, then it’s worth doing well” Lord Chesterfield

FAVOURITE PLACE TO VISIT :

Dunmore East – for an early morning swim.

FAVOURITE THING ABOUT WHERE I COME FROM:

Waterford: It has it all. From its historical character to its modern charm: The city is close to the mountains, and the sea. We’ve got scenic cycle routes, gorgeous parks, woodland walks, bars, restaurants, cafés and shops, theatres and museums. There’s something for everyone.
