Daragh Mc Grath, Brisbane Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement Daragh is Irish, in his mid-twenny's and is an IT Manager by trade! He currently works for AustCover a rapidly growing insurance company based in Brisbane. Previous to this, his most recent place of work was at the very cool LINX - London Internet Exchange. He loves what he does and considers himself exceptionally lucky because he works at his hobby! Daragh has recently moved to Brisbane, Australia after living in London for a while. Daragh has been blogging with varying degrees of success here at www.daraghmcg.org since March 2003.
Daragh has a very keen interest in photography, he’s currently working on building up a portfolio he would be happy to have out in the public domain. You can find most of his work in his flickr stream.
Daragh had a brainwave in March 06 to set up the Dublin Community Blog www.dublinblog.ie to add to his woes. Given he's 10500 miles away from Dublin now however, he's taken a back seat from writing here, and just looks after the back end work.
Daragh’s other interests are rugby (spectating), sailing, travel (lots), formula one, keeping up to speed with global news, and writing thoughts and opinions about what’s going on in the world when time allows.
Daragh used to drive a green MINI Cooper which he misses dearly. He (and Kassie) are eagerly awaiting the delivery of their new MINI Cooper S! Living in London, one of the things he missed most was having a car. Being in Australia, with a huge country to explore in a very cool car, is very, very exciting.
Home currently is Brisbane City, living on the river bank with a spectacular view of the city. Home used to be about 50km north of Dublin, Ireland with his family, including two dogs and a cat, followed by a gorgeous apartment in Canary Wharf, London.
