I have been a member of Macra Na Feírme Castlebar since the club was started by a group of my friends in 2010. As part of this I have been a member of the organising committee for the past three years of a major event in the Club Calendar, the “Know Your Neighbour Weekend”. Castlebar Macra organise a family fun day on the Mall in Castlebar, which for the past two years has attracted a crowds of around 2,000 people.

Some of my other hobbies include golf, soccer and playing darts, as it is a sport with a great social aspect. In 2012/2013 season I played darts in the Castlebar town league for the Castle Inn bar. We finished the season tied for first place in the league and went on to win the town league final for our division.
