Olympic and European Qualification

Raised by 91 people in 48 months

Friends and family,

With my continuous progression over the past few years, I’ve decided to set up a gofundme account to help me achieve my goals and dreams to compete at the 2016 Olympic Games and European Championships. Breaking 4 minutes in the mile (3.58.50) and winning my second national title in the 3,000m steeplechase this summer lead to me really thinking about what I can achieve with actual financial support. Add that to my progression over the last few years and still only being 24 years of age and here I am!


Achievements to date:
• I’m currently the 9th fastest Irishman ever over the 3,000m steeplechase and 27th fastest Irishman ever over the mile.
• I’ve represented Ireland 3 times over the last two years at the European Team Championships and World University Games.
• I finished 9th at the 2013 NCAA Championships in the 3,000m steeplechase achieveing All-American status.


The money I raise will go towards travel costs to meets in California, Iowa, New Jersey and across Europe in the summer. Travel costs include plane tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars and gas. Add that to physio needs to keep me injury free, use of anti-gravity treadmills, apparel, shoes, spikes, and entry fees and that’s where my figure comes from.



Thanks so much!

On April 1st, I opened up my outdoor season with an 8.44.75 3k steeplechase out at the Stanford Invitational, California. Although I was a little disappointed, its very early days and the fastest time I've ever opened up with. I will race next May 1st where I will hope to go a lot faster.
Thanks for everyone's donations, it helps a lot.

Folks, I ran a 1km on Friday night which was a real shock to the system since I haven't ran anything that short since July but I got a race in and won which is always nice.
Training is going really well and my first big test of 2016 will be February 6th at the University of Notre Dame were I will run the Meyo Mile.

As always, thanks so much for your support.
