Welcome to my site I hope you enjoy it.
I will be posting on all things that interest me in football, although bear with me as I am learning all the time about building a website, and it is a much harder skill than any in football!
My 20 year professional career saw me play and score in The Premier League, The Championship, League One and League Two, as well as Internationally and in The Champions League.
I was proud to represent The Republic of Ireland for nearly 10 years and I also won a few things along the way.
I have been fortunate to have played and worked with so many brilliant people, in what I feel is the best game in the world.
After nearly the same length of time spent educating myself in coaching, I have the highest coaching award in Europe, The FA UEFA Pro Licence, as well as The FA UEFA A licence, The FA UEFA B Licence and The FA UEFA C Licence.
I am close to completing The FA Advanced Youth Award Part Two after gaining The FA Youth Award Modules 1,2 and 3 and The FA Advanced Youth Award Part One.
I have also completed the LMA Diploma in Football Management and hope to finish my BA (Hons) in a few months time.
A father of four children, I have a deep interest in the education and coaching of players from the very bottom to the very top, and I am deeply passionate about the beautiful game.
