  • About me: Where do I start.......I am from Co. Clare in the West of Ireland, grew up in East Clare in a rural background, raised by foster parents on a farm which I remember I really liked, studied at Limerick Institute of Technology, and later at VIA University in Horsens, Denmark, returned home, worked for a few different Architectural Practices, designed and built a home in East Clare, I am a proud father of 2 wonderful boys, Daithí & Oisín, I founded my own business in 2003, which sadly went the wayside in 2011 after the crash of 2008, worked with BNI from 2007 to 2011, and made the big jump into the unknown to work in Afghanistan in 2011, as a direct result of the worsening economic conditions at home, that led on to a position in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where I am at the moment, I started blogging in 2011 as a way of staying connected to family and friends back home while I was working in the Southern Afghan desert.......so here I am, A Long Way to go for a Sun Tan......
