James is a passionate advocate for Physical and Health Education and the many different ways that it helps to develop positive qualities in students, from empathy to communication and beyond. He endeavours to instil a lifelong appreciation of the enjoyment to be found in movement and physical activity in the students he works with.
Outside of teaching, James enjoys hiking, particularly in the Wicklow and Kerry mountain ranges. He enjoys participating in sport, notably badminton and cricket. James lives in Greystones where he is building his tolerance of the cold Irish sea by getting out for a swim as often as possible and he likes to spend time at his parent’s farm down in Kilkenny where he is currently in the process of building an off-grid cabin.
He is thrilled to be part of the excellent PHE department at NAIS Dublin!
