Michéal was born a farm in rural Ireland and has had an innate affinity with nature, local history and the environment from an early age. He has also lived in cities and towns and understands the importance of urban green spaces, industrial and historical heritage sites.

With his background education (he has a Biology Degree) and previous life experiences (as a travel writer, hiker and journalist etc.) Michéal has garnered a wealth of knowledge and understanding across a wide range of areas - Science, Nature, Biodiversity, History and Geography.

Michéal is a strong believer in the power of storytelling to engage with children and young adults no matter what the topic, and to make it fun and participatory. Go out and be in nature, see the local historical and geographical sights and experience the wide-open spaces, hear about the local folklore and history.

He takes a more holistic view of school’s local area and likes to get pupils to appreciate their own environment and locale from a nature, geographical, historical, folklore and overall heritage perspective. It is all connected and forms the story of where they are from.

Michéal is also a qualified Leave No Trace Awareness Trainer which informs people how to enjoy and experience the outdoors while minimising their impact on the environment, thus preserving it for future generations to enjoy.
