About Me:

A County Kildare native, this is my third year working with Christmas FM. I’ve always been drawn to entertainment and I’m heavily involved with musical theatre groups across Leinster.  I graduated from the Christmas FM training course in 2016 and I’m thrilled to be working once again with this wonderful group of people, and for another fabulous charity partner.

Your role at Christmas FM:


Why Christmas FM:

I love the atmosphere in Christmas FM – it is such a positive place to spend the Christmas period, and everything that we do directly benefits our chosen charity. Why wouldn’t you want to be part of a group of amazing people that help spread Christmas cheer around the world!

My Favourite Christmas Song:

‘Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ – either the Frank Sinatra or Michael Bublé versions.

My Favourite Christmas Food:

Turkey Stuffing!

My Favourite Christmas Movie:

‘Love Actually’ – it’s my guilty pleasure!!

My Favourite Christmas Tradition:

My wife and I have started a lovely tradition with our kids – every Christmas Eve we go into Dublin early in the morning – queue for breakfast, and watch the city slowly get busy as the day goes on! Have a hot chocolate and be home by lunch!

Where I’m From:

I am from Clane, Co. Kildare and I am heavily involved with various musical theatre groups across Leinster, in particular Clane Musical Society, Kilcock Musical Society & Harolds Cross & Tallaght Musical Society. I have a long career in the hospitality industry spanning 15 years.
