Profiles of CLUAS Writers
Garret Cleland's Profile
Garret's love of music started the day he picked up a copy of
Enemy', the then latest record from Manic Street Preachers. From that moment on,
music became the most important element in his life. He was such a frequent
customer to the local (and only) record store in Drogheda that the manager used
greet him with a grin from ear to ear.
In 2006 he moved to the bright lights of Dublin. Taking in as many gigs as he can along the way, Garret is a student of commerce in UCD. The usual response to that is a look of disgust, followed by something along the lines of 'Oh, you're one of them?'. He hosts the alternative music show, Air Raid, with like-minded folk on Belfield FM.
