Hadrian’s Walk: Meet Sean

Posted on


Name: Sean Kinsella
Age: 28
Job Title: Tech Support Engineer
Where do you live? Liverpool
Time at Midshire? 4 years
Who is your favourite co-worker and why?
Mike Ditchfield – Fellow scouser and good drinking partner!!


Why have you decided to take on the Hadrian’s Wall walk?
I’ll always help Midshire where I can to do my bit for charities they are involved with. Maybe I am not as enthusiastic as some, like breaking world records, but when it comes to a ‘nice, easy, stroll in the park’, I’m all up for that!

What walking experience do you have, if any? 
I have lots of walking experience, I regularly walk home from the pub, kebab in hand.

What are you looking forward to the most about the challenge? 
Looking forward to being physically challenged as I’ve never attempted anything like this before.

What are you looking forward to least about the challenge? 
I get on brilliant with my colleagues, but the good thing is once 5pm comes, I can happily say goodbye to them. Spending 24hrs a day for 6 days with them is particularly daunting!! 😉 And the obvious…BLISTERS.

How physically fit would you rate yourself on a scale of 1-10? 

What is your personal fundraising target? 
I don’t have one, every penny counts and I’d be disappointed if I set a target and did not meet that target.


What are the 3 things you are taking that you couldn’t leave at home? 

1: Mobile Phone
2: Mobile Phone Charger
3: Hipflask of whisky (strictly as a nightcap in case of a cold night)

Favourite chocolate bar? 

If you could have a superpower what would it be?
Invisibility, the practical jokes I could play on people would be endless.

Which celebrity would play you in a movie about your life? 
Al Pacino, simply as he is my all time favourite actor.
