A message from Mr Gay Ireland 2016…
I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity, I’m very thankful for the support everyone has shown me in the last few months. My Family, Friends and the LGBT scene has been so amazing. The charities I’ve chosen and sponsors have been  more supportive than I could have ever imagined. They seem truly excited that the Mr Gay Ireland title is in Cork. And it makes me even prouder to be a Corkonian. I can’t wait to show the good this title can do
