By far the best gift I've ever received on my birthday. I got it from my daughter Aimée. I know it's hard to read, but It says:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD, I LOVE YOU AS MUCH AS THE SUN. DAD DOESN'T LET ANYONE HURT YOUR FEELINGS OR SMASH YOUR GOALS. I LOVE DAD AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
The drawing at the bottom is supposed to be of her and me saying "Go Notre Dame " 😢😍 #daddydaughter#birthdaycard#notredame#fightingirish#love#family#blessed
There are memories from childhood, specific conversations, places I’ve visited, people I’ve met... all these moments have influenced and inspired me in so many ways. They have inspired me to choose the path I am on today. I must say, if this place would have been on that path in my childhood, there is no doubt in my mind that I would have dreamt of going to school here as a young adult. I was so moved by this University...The Spirit, the Faith, the old Tradition. #NotreDame#fightingirish#Catholic#faith#yoga
14 Days, 5 Flights, 2 World Championships, 5 Fights and a Bronze medal, from Budapest 🇭🇺 to Bahrain 🇧🇭 I’m finally back in Ireland!
Thanks for everyone for all the support over the last 2 weeks all your messages and support meant a lot! I was in unlucky in Bahrain losing out to the eventual winner Brazil in the first round was great experience and can’t wait to get back in the cage, thanks to all the guys who represented Team Ireland and the coaches for making the trip such a memorable one! , Taking a break from competing until the New Year! I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone now that I’m back!
I’d just like to give a shoutout to my sponsors @primetimecork for their continuing support.
Id like to thank Leon Lynch in @exceed_fitness for doing my strength and conditioning during my fight camps, in the last two months I’ve had 12 fights in total and been training and sparring for 3 solid months, I’ve had no injuries and didn’t burn out from over training, his support was massive, any questions I had about nutrition or training he was there! I couldn’t recommend the guys in Exceed Fitness more for any Personal Training or Nutritional needs for people of all levels of fitness.
Making the move to Dublin was daunting especially leaving my fam in @mmacork but the best thing I did when I moved up was join @sbgireland, everyone in the gym has been so welcoming and friendly can’t wait to get back Training with ye guys!
Looking forward to spending Christmas with my family and friends especially with my better half @colinccasey who puts up with me and my “vacays” ❤️ #mma#fighting#fighter#champ#bjj#sbgireland#cork#dublin#wako#hungary#kbi#westcork#worlds#ireland#flyweight#immaf#bahrain#fightingirish#bjjcork
I am extremely proud of my sister @gabishilling for winning a state title this past weekend. She has put hundreds of hours into training and practicing to make sure she and her team are prepared for battle. Being a captain of a top ten team in the country is no easy feat. You rose to the occasion and went out on top! Well deserved Gabs! Next Stop: Rhode Island 😎😎. #NDP#FightingIrish#StateChamps#LetsGoRhody#ImTheLeastAthleticSibling

It poured, we froze, and I am sick today, but it was totally worth it! Thank goodness for Cory and Shelby bringing all of the survival necessities and for Momma Lester always being the comedic relief - leave it to my family to make the best of it and still have a FIGHTING good time in lackluster weather 😁💙☘️🏈🔥🧤🧣 #FightingIrish#ND
Great things, never come quick, never come easy, but always always WORTH it.
Overnight success doesn’t appear ‘overnight’ it’s from months and years of persevering, working silently, and then the rewards come.
Extraordinary things, require a lot of perseverance. But it’s always worth it!.

No matter the goal, fat loss, 1st amateur fight, becoming a world champion, opening up your own business,..... the requirements are always the same, hard work........ and more hard work when your tired from the hard work!
Always persevere tho!......... the rewards will come!
