Paul has significant experience working in both the private and public sectors in the Tourism Sector. He began his career with Ryanair working as a web designer and developer in the commercial department. Paul ran Sales & Marketing for the Cliffs of Moher Experience with one of Ireland's largest providers – Shannon Heritage. He worked for the regional development agency Shannon Development before joining Fáilte Ireland.
A keen sportsman, Paul is still active with his local GAA club;
"Hurling was my first love, and I have been blessed to achieve success with my club at every level, from Senior Club All Ireland in 2009 to winning the County Junior C in 2015. I’m still active with my local club and love helping train the Under 6’s girls’ team of which my daughters are members."
Paul's favourite place in Ireland is being at home with his wife and two girls in the beautiful town of Ennis in County Clare – his favourite sentiment is "If you've never failed, then you aren't trying hard enough."
