Alan Byrne

Alan Byrne is actually quite busy watching Frasier, finding jokes to steal for his next blog. His writing has been featured on several quickly abandoned blogs. He was one of 16 finalists in the Irish Metro Herald newspaper's "Write Here, Write Now" young journalist competition in 2010, but wore a T-shirt celebrating the demise of newspapers to his interview with the judges. He did not win that contest. His areas of expertise are video games and "assorted nonsense."
