Garrett attended the Christian Brothers School in Naas, and at a very young age began working on his father’s horse & cattle farm. He continued his education at Multi Farm Agricultural College, Co Westmeath. Garrett originally emigrated to England, and then to America arriving in New York in 1995.
Garrett is currently a bar owner of Tuttles Bar & Grill in Midtown Manhattan, and Furlongs Roadhouse Inn in East Durham, New York. Prior to this, Garrett was in the Resident Management industry with the assistance of a dear friend and founding father of the Emerald Guild Society. His bar business experience dates back to England with his first pub The Earl Darby in North Kensington, and was joined by his father, Tommy RIP, in The Greyhound in Sheperdsbush that also brought his eldest brother, John RIP, into the trade. This led to the opening of two additional establishments and many successful years in the business.

His efforts created an Annual “Sports Day” in Sheperdsbush for hundreds of children over many years, several charitable golf outings and the successful raising of funds to help send a very well deserving young lady from his hometown, Kill, to the Special Olympics in Barcelona. Both his sporting and fundraising enthusiasm continued in New York where he trained for and completed the New York City to Boston cycling event to support HIV/Aids Research and many bike rides for Multiple Sclerosis.
