I am passionate about
i am currently the captain of the Irish paralympic soccer team and this is what i am most passionate about. i was born with Cerebral Palsy so this is what qaulifies me to play for the team. from a young age i have always loved football and i never allowed my disabillity to hold me back when it came to playing. i competed at the Bei-jing Paralympics games in 2008 and the squad is currently in the cycle of trying to qualify for the Rio 2016 games.
i have attended several events and given talks which focus on trying to get young people with disabillites into Sport. i feel sport is a huge positive contributer to every young individuals development as a person. when i retire as an athlete this is an area i really want to get involved more in.
