Instructor, Donal Sheedy
My name is Donal Sheedy and I am an RSA Approved Driving Instructor No 39440 and the owner of Limerick Biking School. I am an Advanced Qualified rider, (RoSPA Gold) and I am regularly re-tested to maintain that high standard.
Motorcycles have been my passion for as long as I can remember, finally getting on the road at 16 years of age. I have covered hundreds of thousands of kilometres in my time, on a vast range and style of motorbike. My chosen sole mode of transport for nearly a decade was my motorbike, which exposed me to riding in a wide range of weather and road conditions where I gained invaluable experience, which I can now pass onto others.
I enjoy all aspects of Biking from Motorcycle racing, Vintage and classic motorbikes, and Touring. I have toured throughout Ireland, the UK, and Europe. I’m a qualified mechanic and I have spent many years in the motorcycle industry, repairing and servicing all makes of bikes which gives me a vast knowledge of how it all works.
I have also ridden as a volunteer Blood Biker, transporting vital medication, equipment, and blood products all over Ireland under time-pressured situations.
