He has performed on stage, radio and television in Britain and Ireland. Between acting, he writes extensively on the countryside and natural history as well as devoting time to poetry and short stories.
He stood twice as a independent for Parliament in Britain and also contested the EU elections in the Leinster constituency. 'Telling it at a Slant' which is dedicated to the memory of Joe's brother Richard, was published by the U.K. company Pen Press and is also available as a recording.
