Michael’s role is to assists members of the autism community, family members and professionals with their queries, concerns or issues.  Michael also coordinates our Community Support events, which specifically address the needs of the autism community.

He co-founded Ireland’s first 5K ‘Run for Autism in 2018 and in 2016 helped set up the biennial ‘Sparkle for Autism’ Ball.

Michael is currently studying for his Barrister at Law Degree at King’s Inns with the hope of specialising in Disability Law and Human Rights. He is the proud big brother of a neurodiverse wee man called Gavin, who is the inspiration as to why Michael is working with the autism community but also the reason for him studying law.
