A native of Ballina, I am a journalist, web-developer and photographer.
Mayo.Me is a blog about my travels around County Mayo and the adjoining counties of Sligo and Galway.
I love walking and exploring the coastal walks, mountain trails, and lakeside rambles, that make my part of the West of Ireland so unique and beautiful.
Many of the places that I visit I have enjoyed since childhood.
It’s also great to find new beauty spots, walking trails and discover the historic and interesting heritage sites along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
Photography has been a hobby of mine since I was a teenager. I love to photograph the beautiful scenery – and try to capture something of the moment that I am so fortunate to experience on my walks.
All of the photos you see on this site have been taken by me – hopefully in some small way capturing the extraordinary beauty of the landscape, seascape and night skies of the West of Ireland.
For me the old adage one picture is worth a thousand words holds true.
I hope you enjoy your visit to Mayo.ME.
