Born in Ireland, Feargal graduated from University College Dublin as an electronics engineer. He moved to England in 1994 to take up a commission as a weapons engineer officer in the Royal Navy's Submarine Service. Following a training course in the Highlands, Feargal requested a transfer to Scotland and Glasgow became his home.
