‘I am 30 years old and living in Clonsilla, Dublin 15. I come from a family of 5, one older brother Niall, one younger sister Amy and my parents Mags and Gary. Until I was diagnosed with Auto Immune Liver Disease in 1999 I was extremely sporty. I played gaelic football, soccer, basketball but my one love was camogie, which I played for St Oliver Plunketts Eoghan Ruadh. At the moment I enjoy taking part in Zumba dance class as well as taking part in the mini marathon 6 months after my liver transplant to raise money for St.Vincents University hospital among other runs such as Run For A Life. I enjoy being surrounded by my extended family both in Cork and Cavan and my close friends and of course my little yorkie Ted! I’m really looking forward to going to Malaga to challenge myself in new sports and experiences’.
‘It is a huge privilege to be a member of Transplant Team Ireland and I’m extremely excited to be part of such a happy and energetic group of people. It’s something that less than 2 years ago I could never have imagined ever being a part of. It will be a great opportunity to spread the positive message of life after transplant’.
‘Make new friends from around the world, compete as part of a national team and spread the important message of Organ Donation on a world stage’.
