I was born in Dublin and then moved to Adare, Co Limerick where I grew up. I started playing rugby for UL Bohemians at seven years of age and I now play my club rugby with Young Munster.

At schools level I played in the Junior Cup and Senior Cup finals with Ardscoil Ris in Limerick. Most recently I was part of the Munster U-20s squad that won the inter-provincial title in September.

Favourite Munster game?

It has to be the Heineken Cup semi-final v Leinster in Lansdowne Road in April 2006. It was an incredible day with a sea of red taking over Dublin.

Most memorable game I have played in?

I would have to say the Munster Schools Senior Cup semi-final v St Munchins at Grove Island in March 2014. I was playing at out-half and we were behind 7-5 when I had the opportunity to kick a penalty and drop-goal to put us ahead and get us through to the final, 11-5.

Favourite ground?

The home of Young Munster RFC, Tom Clifford Park. It's where I played my first Ulster Bank League game in 2014 against UCD.
