Archie is 14 years old, and his nick name is Ra Ra. He is, and always has been a very content, happy and sociable child, or should we say ‘teen’?

His favourite things in the whole wide world include, his dog, Sadie Mathilda; his friends; soccer; rugby; hurling; Gaelic; assisted running; school; learning to play drums; cooking; ice cream and cake! He adores all animals and is particularly keen on polar bears. He worries a lot about them becoming extinct because of global warming. He also loves going to the farm in Oran and driving his John Deere Gator; this gives him great independence. His ambition is to be a professional Goal Keeper; to play rugby for Connaught & Ireland and be a drummer in a rock band! If this does not go to plan, he would love to be a PE Teacher or a Veterinary Nurse. He is the most fantastic, caring role model to his brothers and loves them very much. Archie is our angel and is loved & adored very much, by his whole family and his many friends.
