I have being working with steel for the past 25 years, in various applications. I have immersed myself in the craft of the blacksmith since 2008.To work with the five elements, releases a great energy, and sense of self fulfilment, the elements being: thought, earth, fire, water and air.
In 2011 I was the initiator and one of the main organisers of the 2011 Monaghan forge in, the largest gathering of blacksmiths ever seen in Ireland. The aim of this event was to promote the craft county wide, which was achieved by wholesale media coverage. It was also the largest event of the Year of Craft.
