Getting Social With… James Kavanagh

Getting Social With… James Kavanagh

  posted on   |    written by Caroline Heywood

Our work often sees us rubbing shoulders with all kinds of exciting folks, from influencers to medical experts...

"Getting social with" is a new addition to the Walsh:PR blog, where we get to turn the tables and become journalists ourselves by sitting down with a familiar face to talk all things social!

This month we had the pleasure of working with ‘Ireland’s Snapchat King’ James Kavanagh. Last year James left his day job to become a full-time influencer and launch Currabinny food company with his boyfriend William - he hasn’t looked back since!

PS. We now love him as much as he loves Princess Diana and frozen Wispa bars!
