When I left my home in Dublin during my 20s, my plan was to travel and see the world. Cork was my first stop but because it offered me a colourful, cosmopolitan, and culturally rich life, I never went any further.

Being officially a “blow-in” as I was not born here, I now believe I can claim to be an honorary Corkonian, having lived here for 40 years! I have spent all my life so far in the realms of travel and tourism, and qualified as a Cork Tourist Guide in 1999. Much has changed and continues to change in Cork since then, and I enjoy spending as much time as possible in the City Centre just to keep abreast of what is new and different.
