John in his spare time is an enthusiastic cyclist and has cycled around the entire country for charity. He still plays 5 a side with the same crew and only ‘retired’ from full time soccer at the age of 39. He coaches with Ennis RFC and is an avid gardener if he has any time left over after that.
He is also involved in charitable work, travelling to Belarus annually to assist in the orphanages down towards Chernobyl. To his eternal embarrassment and the amusements of others he has recently danced and boxed to raise funds for local charities.
