My Name is Fionn Crombie Angus, I am from Ireland.
I live in the west of Ireland, dividing my time between Mountshannon, a small village where I grew up, and Galway, a small city nearby, where I have my own apartment.
I enjoy playing Irish traditional music, learning about world wildlife,  bird watching, film making, visual arts and basketball.
I am passionate about people with disabilities having a great life. I also care about the planet and work with a group dealing with climate change.
I am the Public Relations Officer for the National Advisory Council in Down Syndrome Ireland. (NAC). THE NAC is an elected Council representing the voices of people with Down syndrome in Down Syndrome Ireland.
We meet every month in Dublin. I travel independently from Galway to Dublin. I enjoy discussing things with the other council members, being involved in lots of projects and learning new things. My voice counts!
