Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

At the age of 16, Rory has moved from his family into Limerick to train with the High Performance squad as swimming is his dream. This is a big achievement for him and it is very challenging at such a young age as he organises his life to get to training at 0430hrs and from there to school. He has had to change schools in a new city, leave friends, family and home.
