About me

I was born and reared in Dublin but I along with my family would always travel to Cahersiveen town in Kerry for our holidays. I lived in Dublin until the age of 25 working in the Gresham Hotel.

On my 25th birthday, I suffered a brain haemorrhage. Thankfully I survived and as part of my recovery, I spent 15 long months in a rehabilitation hospital in Dun Laoghaire. When I entered the rehab hospital, I could not walk, or talk, and my right arm was completely paralysed.

I was offered the chance to leave the hospital by my doctor on the condition I spent 6 months in the National Learning Network in Tralee.

This would specifically prepare me to go back to work. I was keen to leave the hospital in Dun Laoghaire so I decided to relocate to Tralee.

I moved to Tralee in 1996. After two weeks, I knew I would never go back to Dublin because I loved Tralee so much. It was so peaceful, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Dublin.

The rehab in Tralee did an excellent job of preparing me to re-enter the workplace. I made an almost full recovery, the only thing that I didn’t get back to full use was my right wrist.

Moreover, my language was adversely affected and that’s why my English is poor on this website but I try to explain everything as clearly as I can. I want to thank my wife & friends who will give me a hand before I post anything. I have been working in the public sector for the past 22 years now.

I hope you enjoy my website and it gives you plenty of things to do.

Thank you
