Martin graduated from Sligo Grammar School in 2004 and went on to NUIG where he graduated with a LLB (Batchelor of Laws) in 2008. He followed this with a Masters in Law from Trinity College in 2009 then qualified as a Barrister and was called to the Bar in 2010. Martin is currently working as In-House Counsel with An Garda Siochana.  SGS wishes him all the best in his bid for the Tokyo Paralympics.
