I began with introducingto the Irish National Heritage Park circa 1995 when I founded a Living History group Gael agus Gall - this involved researching work in Viking Age Ireland for presentation to the public visiting the Park - using the (re)constructed buildings as a context. My own specialism is Medieval -working and I have written many specialist reports on finds from various sites around Ireland. I am currently reconstructing some of these finds to gain a better understanding of the original methods used. I have also been involved in the setting up of the UCD programme having previously organised practical seminars for students in the Park. In 2005 I organised a major in Wexford which involved bringing a Viking - the Gaia from Sandefjord in Norway in conjunction with 70 Viking re-enactors and craftspeople from Borre (Norway) to the Park. We had approximately 10,000 visitors that weekend. Since 2006 I have been a member of the Danish longship Havhingsten crew. I am currently in the process of establishing an Experimental Archaeology Group in the Park.
