Growing up in Carrigaline in Cork I loved maths and played rugby. When picking my CAO courses, I figured that if I graduated in three years this would tie in with the Rugby World Cup in Cardiff. So that was a big motivator to study business and IT there.

My second college summer in 2000 I worked in Washington DC on a J1 visa in sales for an internet connection firm. It was the height of the dotcom boom and the money was obscene.

I got caught up in the excitement and considered staying. My mum called to check what return flight I was on and I told her: "I'm not coming home, Breda. There's serious money to be made here."
