Raised on a farmland in Offaly to a strict Christian household Daryl was brought up on the Bible. His family clung to religion as it was their only pillar of salvation during The Troubles. The horrors he and his family heard weekly on the radio only made their belief more galvanized.
Every Sunday, no matter the conditions, after finishing up his farmland work he'd hike to the nearest parish about an hour walk on muddy roads. Sometimes his father would let him sit on the trailer of the tractor if Daryl could recite a certain amount of quotes from The Bible as proof of his devout belief. As the years went by his family started hearing of these things called 'Mission Trips' and they decided to start saving for one.
Eventually in 2005 his family decided they had enough money to go to one of these 'Mission Trips' they heard of in East Africa. There Daryl met more like minded people his own age and it strengthened his bond with fellow Christians as they protected one another and fought for their faith.
