Background

I've worked in DMOs since 1999, both rural and urban. Initially I was in leisure tourism but made the move to MICE in 2010 and haven't looked back. My early career involved welding equipment but left that after an incident involving nuclear submarines - ask me about that some day!

Favourite thing to do in Dublin:

Walking into the Long Room Of the Old Library at Trinity College still gives me a shiver - I just think it is such a spectacular space. I love a good pint of Guinness and there are no shortage of great spots to enjoy it in Dublin. To get a perfect pint with a creamy head after the correct pour is so enjoyable.
