YOUR LOCAL KEY CONTACTS
I’ve always enjoyed working in the entertainment and ticketing industry and started at the bottom, working at the famously busy Ticketshop at Virgin, Belfast in the 90s.
I started working for Ticketmaster in 1999 and haven’t looked back, working as General Manager in Belfast and now in Business Development. Throughout the years I have gained experience in all aspects of the business, working at many massive outdoor events, signing new clients and was involved in launching the Ticketmaster business in Scotland in 2002.
I still very much enjoy working with our clients at local events, in festival box offices and at many of the sporting venues that we work with.
I began my career in the ticketing industry in 1998 working in the ticket office in Croke Park. I spent 5 years as ticketing manager for the GAA before my move to Ticketmaster in April 2005.
Since then I have been managing the relationship between TM and our many sports clients (e.g. Leinster Rugby, Munster Rugby, Ulster Rugby, IRFU, FAI, GAA). I hold a degree in Sports & Exercise science as well as a Graduate Diploma in Computer Programming.
I have a very keen interest in all sports particularly GAA and US sports. I am very happily married to Arlene and have 2 wonderful girls, with whom I can be found when not at sports events all over Ireland!

A Dublin native I have a very keen interest in GAA and play with the Division 1 Senior ladies team in Fingallians CLG.
I have worked for ticketmaster for 25 years and have gained vast experience in the industry through many different roles. I oversee the operational side of the business including Client Services, Event Programming, Customer Services and Box Office Operations.
I still really enjoy working with clients to develop a 360° solution for their event from concept to fans entering the building. The buzz of summer festival season resonates with me when every department of our business works tirelessly to provide clients with a top class service.
I have 18 years experience in the world of eCommerce and marketing, starting in online travel and moving to the world of ticketing in recent years.
