Where you’ll never see Gerry?
In a gym.  Instead you’ll find him in the great outdoors, walking the Wicklow hills accompanied by his red setter, Mr Darcy
Happy Place?
Killiney Hill (walking the dog), hiking the Wicklow mountains and anywhere in the West of Ireland.
Desert Island Disc(s)?
REM’s “Nightswimming”, The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” and The Rolling Stones’ “Waiting for a Friend”
That Thing You’d Save in a Fire?
I’d walk away and claim the insurance instead!
Gerry IRL (In Real Life)
When he manages to leave taxation-related challenges aside, Gerry is more than happy to grab his helmet and take his motorbike for a spin.  This could be anywhere ‘round Ireland, Spain, Portugal or France.   And if it’s not biking weather, there’s always the sports car!
