Frank has lived in Rockbrook, South County Dublin for most of his life, having grown up on a family farm. Attending Loreto Convent, Grange Road, Edmonstown National School, Terenure College and Rockbrook Park School and Terenure College. He has been employed in a number of drinks and confectionery import and distribution businesses throughout Ireland since his teenage years.
One of Frank’s early challenges was moving to Northern Ireland and setting up a business, Viscount, by Harland and Wolff in Belfast, importing southern manufactured food and drinks products into the North, including Nashes Irish spring Water, Tipperary Irish spring water, Mulrines of Ballybofey confectionery and Clara candy from Dublin - which was quite a difficult task in those years (1984-1994)! He overcame many obstacles to grow the company into a successful and highly profitable business.
Seeking new challenges, Frank relocated to Zimbabwe in 1995 and became involved in the tourism business throughout the region when, over a few short years, the political situation became too unstable following the implementation of Robert Mugabe's land redistribution policies. Eventually moving back to Ireland in 2007 Frank cared for his Father before he passed away in 2012 and throughout this period continued to farm his family's land. He is now also involved in the transport industry along with a number of early stage startup businesses.
