CLUAS Writers: profile of Daire Hall
Daire is currently undergoing the trivialities of an arts degree in NUI Maynooth where he finds time to write during brief excursions from essays or watching Family Guy. Once a regular gig-goer, anything that's not a crappy 'Battle of the Bands' in the S.U. bar will be satisfactory. Spends too much time looking online for new CDs as he never has enough, and not enough time sitting in the grass on warm days.
