When I look back I think I was around 5 years old when I started taking an interest in music helping put the records in the record player in my family home. When I was old enough I travelled around County Donegal with DJ John O’Donnell helping at the discos and eventually buying my own gear and doing gigs at various events throughout the length and breath of the country. I’ve always had a Keen interest in radio and how it all worked so I was delighted when the opportunity came my way to Present The Friday Night Love Cruise on Ocean fm. My interest in music is varied but my firm favourite is Billy Joel who’s concert I attended in Madison Square Gardens. I’m delighted to now have the reins on Ocean Drive weekdays from 4pm until 7pm, a programme of music for all tastes, competitions and of course keeping listeners upto date on traffic and travel as you travel home. I have an interest in all aspects of sport which is a great help when working on Saturday and Sunday Sports when the main man is on holiday or you could find me in the commentry box when covering Donegal games.

Outside of radio, I spend time supporting Arsenal and of course Donegal. I love to travel and if it’s not to The Emirates, it’s to family in New York.
