Sam is currently completing an Archives and Record Management Masters Degree in UCD. He finished his B.A. in History and Politics there in 2011. His main research topics include Dublin’s live music scene (1976 – 1984) international connections to the Easter Rising, Dublin’s youth subcultures and the social history of UCD.

D Fallon (Donal Ó Fallúin) writes mainly on his two passions, the social history of the Irish capital and the beautiful game that is League of Ireland football. He is a Saint Patrick’s Athletic supporter of good west Dublin (and south of the river) origins. He works with Historical Insights providing tours of the capital, and has written on the history of Dublin for a variety of outlets including History Ireland, Red Pepper, the Sunday Independent and elsewhere, as well as appearing on Newstalk and RTE radio discussing the history of Dublin. He is currently researching youth criminality in 1930′s Dublin, focusing in particular on gang culture.

hXci (Ciarán Murray) is the only non-native on the CHTM! team; don’t hold it against him. He’s been living in Dublin since 2001, when he moved here to study a degree in English and Philosophy in UCD. His main interests lie in social and political history, Irish music and literature, and, like the other two, League of Ireland football, in particular Bohemian FC. He also has a penchant for wandering the streets of Dublin with his camera, taking the most random of shots. He lives within sight of the Ha’penny Bridge, on the Northside of course.
