D'fhás mé aníos in Iarthar Chorcaí, áit lena bhaineann stair phoblachtach bródúil. Tógadh mé i nGaeltacht Mhuscraí i dteaghlach le Gaeilge, agus mar iníon Seán O Riada, ba nadúrtha dom bheith tumtha ina oidhreacht cheolmhar.

Mar dhuine a chaill a bheirt thuismitheoir ag aois óg, tháinig mé slán ar go leor anachain agus dushláin I mo shaol.

Thug sé meas dom ar bheith neamhspleách, maraon le mothúchán comhbhá dóibh siúd atá ag streachailt leo ina saolta.

Chuaigh obair Shinn Féin ar chur chun cinn na Gaeilge, maraon lena tiomantas i dtaobh comhionannas agus aontacht na hÉireann, go mór i bhfeidhm orm.

Táim bródúil as a bheith mar Fheisire Eorpach d'Éirinn Theas. Tá cónaí orm i mBaile Mhuirne le Nicky agus lenár dtriúr iníonacha Cáit (17), Ailsa (15) agus Neans (12).
