As April is Autism Awareness Month I look back on what I have achieved in the last few months to get me to this point, so far for me 2019 has been busy with finishing my level six in TV and Film Productions course in Limerick, learning to drive, helping out with Tipp FM Sports and as ever helping out with Tipperary football by supporting them every step of the way because they are always fully supportive of all my achievements to date.


I was recently up at the AsIAm fifth year celebrations also on that same day it was World Autism Awareness Day and I was blown away with all the great work that has been achieved over the last couple of years. It really motivated me to keep on doing all the work that I have done with autism because if we keep breaking down the barriers and show that you can succeed, the opportunities are endless.


On that same day we went to Leinster house as Sinn Féin were placing down a Private Members’ Motion calling for a cross-party Autism Empowerment Strategy to be set up which will be hugely valuable to people who will be diagnosed with autism in the future and then give them the supports that’s needed to succeed in life.


Since then I was up at the National FET Learner Forum event for AONTAS in Croke Park on that day I was the keynote speaker It was an honour for me as a learner to be given the opportunity to tell my story of how education has transformed my life with the help of my family and the Tipperary Footballers.

If you asked me five or ten years ago would I have ever seen me achieving all I have to date and the answer would have been not a chance, honestly at that point in my life growing up I was saying to myself “me I have no talents or skills” thankfully the people around me especially my family thought the opposite. Seen that I had plenty of potential in life and a lot to give to society. Then I started to believe in myself which was the key to get me to where I am today by taking it one day at a time.


Also to have a senior county football team supporting me all the way in my journey is a big help, one thing the lads have given me is belief in myself as they said to me before “no matter what anyone says or put you down in life that you can succeed”. Now the summer is around the corner which means the championship is not that far off and I know Tipp footballers will have big days ahead which will give me the inspiration to keep on going……


Good luck to the Tipperary football team and all the management for the championship ahead I know we will be ready for the big days to come, first up Limerick on 11 of May in Semple Stadium!!

what is important is if you believe in yourself anything is possible!
