Farming background

I am from a farming community in rural Ireland and grew up working on mainly dairy farms. I have worked on building sites in my formative years. I am good with my hands and not afraid to tackle anything from basic mechanics to DIY home repairs. Between 1994 and 2017 I worked as a Garda (police officer). I served in Cork city, Dublin city and Mayo. I carried out various functions from general beat duty to culminating in administration office duty.

After 2017 I have worked as a door and window installer/labourer.

I became a floor and wall tiler in 2000 and carried out many small tiling jobs. I still undertake small tiling jobs on a part time basis.

I enjoy working. I have a large appetite for work. I currently work seven days most weeks. Hours of work don't bother me as I believe that if it can be done, then it should be done.

Although I have been working in agriculture for years, I have just experienced my first harvest in 2021 and again in 2022 with ********Farms in Newcastle.

I enjoy using machinery and learning their capabilities. I am a quick learner who loves a challenge.

I can guarantee flexibilty, dependability, reliability and honesty.
