The SportsJOE Team

Evan Fanning (Editor)

Having worked in the UK for several years, where he spent four years with The Guardian before joining The Telegraph as Content Editor in 2012, Evan returns to Ireland to take up the top job at SportsJOE.ie.

Evan brings a wealth of top-class digital media experience to the role of Editor of SportsJOE.ie. Previously part of the famed Guardian Sport team responsible for one of the world’s highest-rated podcasts, Football Weekly, he subsequently helped to build The Telegraph’s online presence.

In addition to his own experience, Evan offers a hefty media pedigree as a member of the Fanning clan which is synonymous with the Sunday Independent, where his brother Dion is Football Writer and his late father Aengus was Editor for 28 years.

Sean Nolan (Deputy Editor)

Sean is a longstanding memory of the JOE family, where he was part of the JOE.ie team from 2011. With the launch of SportsJOE he makes the most controversial same-city transfer since Mo Johnston.

For most of the year he's a very proud Wexford man.

Darragh Murphy

Darragh joined SportsJOE.ie after a spell with the Irish Sun digital team. He is from Cork and likes football, MMA and the odd stout.

Conán Doherty

Conán comes from Derry where he previously worked for River Media as Sports Editor of DerryNow. The holder of a sports science degree, he has a beautifully strong Derry accent so we're desperate to get him on a subtitled video series with SportsJOE contributor and serial Olympian Paddy Barnes.

Patrick McCarry

Originally from Tallaght and now residing in the fine pastures of Co Kildare, Patrick is one of the rugby set on SportsJOE. He's also good on soccer, GAA and golf, but really, he keeps coming back to rugby. He is working on a book about the first generation of Irish professional rugby players.

Neil Treacy

Another of the SportsJOE Munster gang, Neil comes to SportsJOE via Limerick and the Irish Sun and can also be heard manning the sports desk on Q102. He is a club rugby prop forward, so no-one fancies messing with him.

Kevin McGillicuddy

A proud Kerryman - is there any other kind? - Kevin joined SportsJOE.ie from CKLRFM radio, where he was the Sports Editor for two years.

Gareth Makim

A Liverpool supporter, Gareth was Sports Editor with the Metro. If it's about sport and he doesn't know it, then you can be safe in the knowledge that it isn't worth knowing.

Ben Kiely

Ben, 20 and from Kildare, is an MMA nut. Soft-spoken and likeable, he may very well be one stray glance away from a chokehold.

Robert Redmond

Robert, from Dublin, is currently in full-time education at UCD and joins SportsJOE on a part-time basis. He has had football pieces published by the Guardian Sport website.
