Aidan Sheehan Motorcycle Safety Expert

So Aidan, Where are you from originally?
I'm from Dublin originally.


Married? Kids? Etc?
I'm happily married, with one son, Aidan Jnr of course!


What did you do before being a rider instructor?
I was in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and decided it was time for a change. I once read that if you can turn your hobbie into your job, then you'll never work another day in your life - so Ridercoach was born!


Where are you based?
I'm based in Dunboyne, Co Meath but I cover training around all test centres, Finglas, Tallaght, Navan, etc. I also offer IBT courses from the County Club(N3), Dunshaughlin, Co Meath.
