Shane Mahon

Shane Mahon's articles

My name is Shane Mahon and I'm 23 years of age, from the republic of Ireland. Just qualified with a Masters degree in radio and television production in NUI Maynooth and previously a level 8 honours degree in media and public relations.

Have loved the game ever since I was knee high, was the first game I ever tried in school and loved it ever since. Played at a reasonably high enough level, my highlight being, participating in the umbro international tournament at under 16 level in Manchester with my local team St. Patricks from Carlow.

Have presented many radio sports shows in college, with a special emphasis on football. All opinions are my own, please feel free to disagree with whatever I might have to argue! Follow me @mahon999 on Twitter, and find me on Facebook
