Dr. Byrne was born and raised in Carlow, Ireland. Before medical school, he completed a BSc. in Computers at Dublin City University. Dr. Byrne attended Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary for his medical training. After medical school, he worked in Dublin, Ireland as a Senior House Officer and then in Malmo, Sweden in the Emergency Room physician and in Family Medicine.

Before his medical career, Dr. Byrne worked as a computer programmer, personal trainer, substitute teacher and a fisherman with a Norwegian fleet in the Arctic, just to name a few.
