In His Own Words

About him

I was born on the shores of a beautiful bay in the South of Ireland in 1936. There I learned to swim, sail and catch fish with rod-and-line (later, I was to fulfil a boyhood dream by learning to fly, PPL). After primary, I went to the local vocational school. I didn't show much interest in what was being taught there and soon found myself serving an apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery in my builder-father's workshop.

At age 16, I developed a craving for the knowledge I knew I should have. I began with a course in Civil and Municipal Engineering with The British Institute of Engineering Technology (BIET), a distance teaching institute. Of all the courses I have studied since then, including with the Open University (maths,science, business studies), that is the one that has served me best in securing worthwhile posts on construction contracts at home and abroad, and helped me to earn a pretty decent living.

Home from Africa in 1962 I, together with my younger brother, started to build up the family business. Ireland at that time was beginning to change, but it was still very much the poor man of Europe. There seemed to be recessions every two years or so. Then, banks would restrict lending, causing a slowdown all round. This led to chronic unemployment and, of course, inefficiency due to shortage of capital.

After ten years managing the company, I needed a change. The call to Africa was strong again and I landed back there, in South Africa, in 1972. I have since worked in Zambia, Libya, Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. My base for work has been London, where I have lived and worked for some 20 years.

Ah, my love life - beautiful relationships but marriage has escaped me. I do not have children.

About his ideal match

Intelligent, attractive, interesting.
Love of life, animals, outdoors. Maybe some travel? Really just being you! - I would hate to define a complete mould that any individual should fit in; similarities and differences can be equally attractive.
