I am from Montenotte in Cork and started playing rugby with Christian Brothers College where I attended primary and second school.
I played Junior and Senior Cup rugby with the school, reaching the final of the Junior Cup and Bowen Shield.
I have been capped at Ireland Schools, Ireland U-19 and Ireland U-20 level, playing in the Junior World Championship in New Zealand in June 2014.
I joined the Munster sub-academy in 2013 before moving into the academy at the start of the 2014/15 season. I made my British & Irish Cup debut against Moseley last October.
Favourite Munster game: I was there the day Munster defeated Northampton Saints in Thomond Park after 41 phases of play and a winning drop-goal from Ronan O'Gara in the 84th minute.
Most memorable game I have played in: My most memorable game I've ever played was probably against New Zealand U-20s in Eden Park. Facing the haka was always a dream of mine and it was a fantastic occasion.
Favourite ground: I have always enjoyed playing in Thomond Park and I got the chance to play there when running out for Munster Schools against Leinster in the Interprovincial Championship.
