Born in 1991, I began collecting minerals in late 2003. I am currently based in Co. Galway on the west coast of Ireland completing my PhD in mechanical engineering. I graduated from the National University of Ireland, Galway in 2013 with a B.Sc in Physics and Applied Physics.
If you're resident in the country or a collector of Irish minerals please do not hesitate to contact me! The lack of indigenous mineral collectors is something of an enigma, with such a rich mineralogical heritage one would assume that a healthy population of collectors would accompany it...
Sadly this is not the case, and as a result, a lot of the country's mineralogical heritage has been lost due to this curious lack of collectors. This makes it all the more important to get in contact with me if you are based in Ireland or collect Irish minerals.

I generally only collect specimens from the Rep. of Ireland and have a fondness for those from Silvermines, Co. Tipperary. If you have any specimens for sale, trade or even just to show me I'd be most grateful if you would.

Some 360-degree photos of my specimens
I like to try and capture as much information and detail about my specimens as possible. 360-degree mineral photograph is an ideal way to do this.

Locality photographs
An ongoing quest of mine is to photograph as many Irish mineral localities and mines as possible. I endeavour to capture as much of a site as possible on camera in an attempt to create a historic archive of Irish localities. This has led me to focus on creating high resolution panoramic photographs which give a much greater ''feel'' for a locality than standard photographs.

Locality photographs
An important aspect of recording mineral localities and mines is capturing them on video using a drone. This enables the site the be recorded in astounding detail and oftentimes helps identify new features that are not apparent from the ground.
