Irish Media Man



Gerry Hannan

Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Gerry Hannan and I am from Limerick, Ireland. This site is a collection of Articles, Essays and Postings related to Media, History & International Business writing. Most of the items on the Blog are writings from my undergraduate/postgraduate studies in Liberal Arts at MIC/UL and International Business Studies at University of Limerick. I have also added personal notes from readings and quoted from various sources (all of which are Cited) on the web or from my private library.

The purpose of this Blog is to give visitors a simplified, easy to read, series of writings on matters related to local, national and international media and history and a number of personal writings under the ‘Muse’ tab above. You may or may not agree or disagree with any of my postings but I am always interested in hearing your opinions on any article and its content accuracy or inaccuracy.

I hope I have made the site easy to manipulate and I suggest if there is a particular area of interest to you then you access it from the tab on the masthead above. I also have (on the right) a list of all articles in order of posting. My E-Mail (if you wish to contact me privately) is and I am always delighted to hear from you.

I am also researching and compiling a 100 year history of Irish Radio (1900 – 2000) which is keeping me very very occupied. I have made my research available to you on this site if you care to browse through it.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Blog and please do leave a comment they are invaluable to me.

  1. Hi there Gerry,

  3. Hi Gerry,
    I used to be an avid listener to your show on RLO. Yourself, Tom Ryan and Tony Browne- the show was brilliant and Limerick has had nothing as good as it before or since. Women from Moyross phoning in moaning about Limerick corporation, Jim from Oola and Tom Ryan’s battles with Tim Long – just terrific stuff.
    Anyway best of luck in your studies and hope to hear you in the radio again someday.
