Deserted Island Discs 005 - Phil McGahern
This recording is part of a project called Deserted Island Discs created by the charity Mind Yourself, with support from the Ireland Fund of Great Britain. We wanted to make space for Irish men to talk about their lives through the music that influenced them. The music is as diverse as the stories themselves.
Phil McGahern was born and bread in county Cavan,Ireland. He first made the move to London in 1970 and began working on building sites before becoming a barman for over 20 years, in some of London’s most well know Irish bars of the time..
