This is me - Patrick McKiernan


Hey there. You look great today. I like the way your shoes match your eyes, clever. My name is Patrick. I'm a 26 yeard old freelance worker that spends his many hours of free time listening to massive amounts of music and talking massive amounts of, well, nonsense about anything and everything, but never nothing. My fave bands are Nickel Creek, Manic Street Preachers, Neutral Milk Hotel and Wilco to name a few as well as artists such as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Christina Courtin (check her out!!) as well as my own band 'The Peacocks', the greatest band to have existed in theory.

Other things I like to do are watching movies, writing articles and stories as well as watching copious amounts of tennis (I want to have a bromance with Rafa Nadal) and football (I’m a devotee of staring at the Soccer Saturday gang for 6 hours each week). Anything else? hmmm, oh yes. I can cook pasta just by staring at it and hold the Northern Irish record for helping old ladies across the road. Then tripping them up and nicking their pensions. It truly is a blessed life.
