Niall started out his career in Hayfield Manor as a waiter, but through sheer diligence & determination, has recently been appointed Orchids Fine Dining Restaurant Manager. It is a job which he relishes. Asked what his favourite dish in Orchids is “It has to be the feather blade of beef it is magnificent however if I was eating in Orchids I could not pass up the chance to request a proper Blue Steak”. His favourite thing about working in Hayfield is his work colleagues and their willingness to help one another which allows him to focus 100% on his job. 

Niall has such a positive attitude & shows great willingness to provide a wonderful service to customers, ensuring that he has the pleasure of welcoming them back time & time again. 

In his spare time Niall is a passionate chef. He enjoys the great outdoors and spends his time  wakeboarding, power kiting and running.
