Fiachra Garvey gave up his veterinary studies to pursue his dream of being a concert pianist, and the equine community’s loss has certainly been music’s gain. He now has a worldwide reputation and a performance diary that is being planned a few years in advance.

When he needs to get away from it all, Fiachra tends to the horses back at his home in Wicklow, in the beautiful area of Ballyknockan. His family also have cattle and sheep.
