5 places you should travel

I have been lucky enough to have travelled a lot with work and even with all the stupid quotes you see on Instagram, it truly is one of the most fulfilling things you can do. That is of course, if you don’t go to the same resort in Santa Ponsa for the next 12 years with the same people. Jesus Christ. Have some imagination.

The Monsters Live in Your Phone..

Every morning, Aidan O’ Carroll goes to work just like millions of others all over the world on their daily commutes. Wearing a custom made Italian three-piece suit, and a trademark cheeky (almost superior) smile, one could be forgiven for thinking he was the kind of slick talking, fast growing executive that he had lofty ambitions of being, almost a lifetime ago.

You expect his little face to light up as you list your accomplishments but instead he turns away disillusioned, bored by your answer before replying: "Isn’t everyone an entrepreneur now though?"

Once more into the fray..

Welcome to the greatest story that I have never told. The story of why I spent years barred from entering the good ol’ United States of America. The home of the brave and the land of the free which felt the need to issue a 21-year-old with a barring order after I was foolishly found hacking into some CIA servers on a dare from a friend.

The Grá for Bailedubh GAA

As mentioned, I am happy to be from Kerry but more than that, I am deeply proud of the fact that I am a Ballyduff man. I was first given the green jersey at the age of 8 and I haven’t let go of it since. It is why I am so proud to be able to give back to my GAA club in some small capacity by sponsoring jerseys for the underage teams and very recently I sponsored tops for the senior team for the county final.
