Barry O’Mahony (Webmaster) spends most of his time teaching martial arts classes around West Cork, but spent a large part of the last decade as a graphic designer, running Dogfish Design since 2007. Out of a misguided sense of nostalgia for the career he fled, he offered to design the Clonline Radio website, and was pleasantly surprised to find that he actually enjoyed doing it. As well as being given free-rein on the design of the site, he was also given free-rein over writing his bio for the site. Lacking the impressive artistic CV of others featured on this page, he decided to talk up his time playing with Clonakilty-based covers band Tequila Mockingbird, where his role largely comprised of playing all the wrong chords and telling jokes to fill the silences between songs. He also decided to allude to the fact that he may be Batman, but there’s no evidence to either prove or contradict that.
Gary Hannon has been a keen musician for 30 years and a DJ for 20 years. His love for music borders on infidelity! He adores the good parts (improvisation and raw emotions) and abhors the bad parts (auto-tune, most chart music). Playing mostly vinyl, Gary’s sets explore the music that he loves – genres such as jazz and dance music, and key artists such as Miles Davis, Björk, Kate Bush, Tom Waits, Radiohead. He is passionate about the merit of any song he plays–no matter how challenging. Check out Gary’s Late Night Cuts on Clonline Radio–a special show every time.
