Biography

He later went on to partake in the construction of several gardens in the Garden Heaven show in the RDS in 2004.  Fintan subsequently returned to academic study in 2006 and again in 2011 to finally attain an honours degree in Horticulture at TU Dublin. In 2016 he returned once again to complete a Master in Environmental Protection at the Institute of Technology Sligo, the knowledge of which he gained now plays a pivotal role in all his landscape design and build operations and has given him a huge insight into the function landscape designers must play in environmental restoration, habitat creation and biodiversity enhancement.
