I began my education at my local primary school of Kilbeggan and then moved onto Secondary School in Kilbeggan also, where I would later return as a teacher. From Kilbeggan I went to continue my studies in Thomond College, which is now the University of Limerick. There I got my honours degree in a Bachelor of Technology in Education.With this I was able to come back to Kilbeggan and tutor for FAS courses and also teach in my Alma Mater until 1995.
