I met Martin McGowan last Saturday and what a pleasure it was! Dublin is such a small town. After researching this project I realised Martin is the father of a dear friend and has also been John’s mechanic for over 10 years!
Martin McGowan has been working in his garage just off Windsor Avenue for over 30 years and has come to be an integral part of the community. His time in Fairview/Marino goes way beyond that though – it is where he found his passion for football in his early teens.
Martin is a true gent who is totally in love with his family and has a genuine zest for life. Want to know more about Martin and see his portrait? Come over to my exhibition on 27th April between 6.30pm-8.30pm at The Annesley House.
There will be more information up about Martin in the weeks to follow.
