I go home to Galway as much as possible

I grew up in Connemara and I always make sure to go home every three weeks.

I love Dublin and living in a city is great, but being from the countryside I find I get a bit claustrophobic if I don't get home every few weeks.

When I'm there, my phone barely works because there's no signal so I can completely cut off from everything.

During the week I make sure to get out of the house as much as possible, so I go for long walks on Dun Laoghaire pier because it reminds me of being beside the sea in Connemara.

This year, I've also started doing charity races, including the VHI Mini Marathon.

I never ever thought in my wildest dreams I would be able to run 10km, but I did it - even though the weather was the worst ever - and raised some money for charity Children In Hospital Ireland.

After I finished the run there was no time to rest - I had to sprint back to RTE's road-caster so I could present our show.
