A native of Cork, Kevin had been working as a freelance journalist for six years before joining the News & Sports Desk at Beat, covering sport across the Rebel County for the Echo and Irish Examiner.
Kevin spent four years on college radio in University College Cork, anchoring its sports programme ‘Ruff Draft’ for two years, and spotlighting the many clubs on campus. He was also the creator of live match commentary service ‘Rebel Radio’, which covered almost 200 games in six countries over six and a half years.
Kevin graduated from UCC with a Bachelor of Arts with European Studies, he was also incredibly fortunate to spend his ERASMUS year in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Marseille, and counts himself a keen supporter of their football team.
And while a proud Corkonian, Kevin’s privileged to be covering a dynamic and diverse region like the South-East.
