Getting Social With… James Kavanagh

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!
