I was born in Cork in 1978 but currently live in Waterford with my wife. I am a lecturer in Economics and Finance in Waterford Institute of Technology and have just completed a PhD in Finance. I am interested in all sports but my main gambling interests lie in soccer and rugby union.
I have been interested in betting for almost as long as I can remember. One of my earliest memories is of my mother sending me to Tramore racecourse with £20 to try to teach me a lesson and discourage me from gambling. I arrived home to her disgust with almost £100 and I was hooked from then on.
