My initial dream careers included being a PE teacher and a detective. However, practicalities led me to complete a National Certificate in Industrial Computing at Waterford Regional Technical College (Now Waterford Institute of Technology/SETU), graduating in 1982 (the first ever Industrial Computing graduates in Ireland). I pursued a career in Information Technology which is now in its 42nd year having worked for major companies based in Tipperary (Merck Sharp & Dohme), Dublin (Prime Computer Ltd) , Waterford (Waterford Crystal/WWRD), Cork (Avnet Client Solutions) and now finally back in Kilkenny with Glanbia PLC since 2014.  During which time I have progressed through various roles at many levels from a Computer Operator to a Programmer to an Analyst Programmer to a Systems Analyst to a Business Analyst.
