Éirways was founded by Kieran O’Hare and Kevin O’Brien. We’re delighted to work with a team of collaborators in Ireland and around the world.

Kieran O’Hare, Co-Publisher and Editor

Kieran was educated at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, and at Trinity College, Dublin, where he received a first class honours degree in Modern Irish History. By the age of 18, he had been described by Studs Terkel as a ‘one-man ecumenical movement’ for his diverse, wide-ranging interests. Kieran is an accomplished performer of Irish traditional music, and he serves on the Board of Na Píobairí Uilleann in Dublin.

Kevin O’Brien, Co-Publisher and Designer

Kevin was born in Philadelphia, and educated in Massachusetts. After a decade in California he moved his family to coastal Maine and founded O’Brien Design nearly thirty years ago, a firm specializing in graphic and publication design. Kevin’s many interests include well-designed books and magazines, architecture, and Irish traditional music.
