Notes from the field

I started playing hockey at primary school at the age of 10. I have played hockey both for UCD Men's Hockey Club in Dublin and C of I in Cork. My first international cap for Ireland was in 2021 against Gniezno and I currently have 34 senior international caps with 6 goals. ’m living in Dublin, studying Economics & Finance in University College Dublin (UCD). I’m working in KKR as a private credit portfolio monitoring unit (PMU) intern. When I am not playing hockey, I like to watch/play football, watch basketball, listen to music, read and go for coffees with my friends.

Kevin's Ritual

My pre game ritual is going for a walk with a coffee, listening to music and chilling out before the game.
