About Gavin Fitzgerald

Gavin is a sports enthusiast and if you can’t reach him on his direct line he is most likely out for a run, in the gym or on the 5 aside pitch/golf course/Wicklow mountains. It took Gavin longer than most to realise that his dream of playing for Manchester United would never materialise (albeit he could probably do a better job than half of the current squad) and has now resigned to the fact that his bi-monthly trips over to Old Trafford will be the best that he can achieve.

Practicing mindfulness and meditation, Gavin seeks comfort in calmness and is fond of a long trail hike at the weekend with his goal being to complete all 938 listed tracks and trails in Ireland. So far he has completed 11!

Gavin is also a Leinster Champion – he is the reigning undefeated young hand writer of the year (having won the award in its final year of 1999!) and he was devastated to learn that one of his only remaining skills would be of no use whatsoever when joining Ireland’s first paperless law firm!
