This blog will be my attempt to look at the issues of the day both in Ireland and internationally and try to provide a bit more detail than the average new story provides along with the odd bit of entertainment.
Work-wise I spent eight years working in politics starting as a stagiaire in the European Parliament. From 2005 in the Houses of the Oireachtas and the Department of Foreign Affairs in Irish Aid as an Advisor to former Minister of State Peter Power. Contested the 2009 Local Elections in Limerick, currently studying History & Economics in University College Cork.
After three years I have a pretty decent beard.
