“I decided to try growing some veg at home, but had little clue where to begin. I found some clips from GROW COOK EAT and that led me to GIY. The more I learned about GIY the more I loved the ethos.”
Brian grew up in Northern Ireland before heading to England for university, where he led his Students’ Union for two years and got a taste for the not-for-profit sector. From there he moved to Glasgow to work for Mary’s Meals and then a short-lived stint in Uganda, before returning to settle in Ireland.
He joined GIY as Operations Coordinator in 2021 and is currently taking a course in Social Enterprise Management at WIT. Brian is a passionate omnivore and thinks GIY is making a huge impact in getting ordinary people growing ordinary food, extraordinarily!
Brian is recently married to his wife, Abbie, and lives in Co Kilkenny with their two cats, a few hens, and a baby on the way. In his free time he likes to watch Netflix, dig around the garden, and is an amateur campanologist with St Canice’s Cathedral.
