Over the years I have worked with many of the top juniors in Ireland. From a playing perspective I won many Junior, Senior and Veterans Competitions. I represented Ireland in the Over 45 World Team Championships in South Africa in 2017 and the Over 50 World Team Event in Florida. I enjoy keeping fit and do tennis training once a week in Dublin.
