Brian joined the Irish Strength Association (ISA) in April 2010, and from that point on Brian was hooked on strength sports. He went to a Highland Games competition and knew that this is want he wanted to do. Brian got involved in strength sports in a big way and had his first strongman competition in June 2010. Highland Games really caught his attention and became his big focus. In June 2011 he had his first win in Novice Ireland's Highland Champions, qualifying Brian for the European Novice Championship! With the help of the ISA he proudly attended these games in Hungary.
"It is so humbling when you get to represent your country and carry your national flag."
In 2012 after recovering from injury and a lot of training Brian competed in the Republic of Ireland's Strongest Man Qualifier, coming in 9th position ahead of some veterans. In July he again represented IRC in Glenarm Castle in Antrim for CLASH OF THE CELTIC GIANTS - where Ireland's biggest and best take on Scotland's strongest in Highland Games, strength challenges and team events. The Scots proved to be a worthy adversary defeating Team Ireland. Brian loved the experience and relished the opportunity to represent Ireland again.
“Hopefully 2013 will be our lucky year in Glenarm.”
Brian competed in the Irish Truck Pulling Championship 2013. The truck was an 18 tonne curtain sider and there were 5 pulls on a 15m course. Brian won 3 and had set an Irish record on his 3rd pull with a time of 33.72 seconds! However in this 4th pull disaster struck! He had ripped his calf muscle and ended up being whisked away to hospital by ambulance and was diagnosed with a grade 1 tear.
Brian worked hard on rehabilitating his calf and about 5 or 6 weeks later he competed in Cork's Highland Games and came 2nd! The following week in Brian's home town was the Tipperary Highland Games, where by the narrowest of margins he came 3rd after a mighty battle with his former coach Daniel Troy.
He also represented Ireland later - Ireland vs Scotland but alas the Scots reclaimed the international trophy.
