Born in a traveller community in Longford, Ireland. He grew up with many siblings and caused trouble quite often with his brothers in the estates around. He dropped out of school at the age of 14 and picked up dog breeding. He trained dogs to fight and held dog fights earning decent sums of money.
After the death of one of his brothers he started to get more violent and impatient. This led him to start getting into bare knuckle fighting and at first he lost a few matches but quickly he became a great fighter. He earned the praise of his siblings. After getting word of a Chernarussian bare knuckler champion, Tommylee instantly knew he had to fight this man. But first he had to make a name for himself and fight some less talented fighters over there in Chernarus. He also made a fair few quality call out videos to the rival traveller families, many of which bottled it and never showed up.
Himself and his brothers got plane tickets over to Chernarus and began their work. Some of his brothers were doing some of their own shit as well. They had their own fights also, they had to follow their grandfathers lead. Just as Tommylee won another fight in a Barn in South Zagoria the following morning word got out of some kind of crisis. Since then Tommylee has set up his caravan with the rest by Novy scrapyard since they could not make it to Crimea.
