Diarmuid since moved to that Gaeltacht and now teaches aireachas ‘mindfulness’ to visiting students. He worked as a facilitator with the SAOR foundation helping young people discover their worth and potential.  He is a former captain of the Wexford hurling team and works as a sports analyst for TG4, Newstalk and other media.  He gives hurling Master Classes ó am go chéile, preferring the beach to the pitch. He is an outspoken critic of the co-opting of culture by technology and founder of the initiative Facebook Free February. He is also one of the founders of GAA activist group Gaelic Voices for Change, fundraising  and lobbying for the homeless.
