Kieran is selected to make his Paralympic debut in Rio.
He was first exposed to the sport of boccia in 2010 through a multi sports day hosted by disability sport Fife (DSF).

Through his career in boccia he has been supported by DSF, Scottish Disability Sport and GB Boccia.
As a BC4 Kieran has the opportunity to play in the BC4 pairs and as an individual. Since joining Kieran has experienced great success both domestically and internationally. In this time Kieran has transitioned into a full time performance athlete training on court between 10/12 hours per week. He also has a daily home conditioning programme two gym sessions, two hydrotherapy sessions and weekly physio as well as the administrative responsibilities that come with being on a world class programme. There are high performance camps once a month that Kieran also attends when the full GB squad are together and bimonthly mini camps with the BC4 group.
During his time on the world class programme Kieran has demonstrated a consistent level of progression and development, achieving a world ranking of 11 at one point in individual competition and a BC4 pairs world ranking of 4. In 2015, Kieran enjoyed a breakthrough year as he achieved individual success at an international competition (European continental cup, Barcelona). He was also part of GB’s BC4 pair that secured qualification for the 2016 Paralympic Games at the 2015 European Team and Pairs Championships.
