Great News: Barry FitzGerald of the Sci-Fi Channel's Ghost Hunters International! Colum (of PIGs) met with Barry recently and he was more than happy to come on board to promote the Irish Paranormal Community. Barry will be giving a talk and will hopefully be answering a few questions at the Dublin Paranormal Convention in Clontarf Castle on Saturday 11th October 2008.
From Sci-Fi Channel's mini-site:
Barry FitzGerald, a veteran ghost-hunter with 17 years of experience in paranormal investigating, is memorable to Ghost Hunters fans for his work on TAPS' investigations in Europe, during the show's third season. Now, as a member of the new GHI team, Barry supplies his expertise in both ghost-hunting as well as his knowledge of the historical locations of each new investigation.
Haunted by supernatural events he experienced as a child growing up in Ireland, Barry developed an interest in paranormal research and went on to work for two different paranormal groups based in Northern Ireland. He now dedicates much of his time to the development of new investigative techniques and research methods.
A lifetime resident of Ireland, Barry previously worked as the warden for the Southern Education and Library Board, where he arranged weekends away for youths and worked on conflict issues and cross-border projects, allowing communities from either side of the cultural divide in Northern Ireland to work together and develop friendships. He is also an avid writer and cook.
I cant wait to get a chance to pick his brains!
