Daire Feeley is a former professional cyclist from Roscommon. The 24 year old has been on a roller coaster of a ride in cycling from a young age.

In this episode, Daire candidly chats about the highs and lows of life on the road. The impact and importance of your environment and its effect on your physical and mental wellbeing. Returning home to Roscommon in 2020 Daire is now flourishing as a rider and is enjoying his role as a coach.
