With over fifteen years marketing experience in sport, construction and loyalty, Trisha brings some diverse experience to the business. Her remit is to create a marketing strategy to help take CARAGON to the next level. A young family doesn’t leave much spare time but she does make time to train and get to as many gigs as possible.
Mick joined CARAGON in June 2016. A student of Computer Science & Physics in Galway and Applied Physics in Maynooth, Mick came to development after a few years on his family’s farm in Tipperary. A key member of the development team, Mick contributes on all projects. Out of the office, Mick is a avid fan of Crossfit and enjoys woodwork, welding and generally taking things apart so he can fix them again (some archetypal developer curiosity that we all benefit from in CARAGON).

Niall is a student of the University of Limerick and has joined the development team on co-op, as a Software Development Assistant. Unusually, Niall enjoys databases, which bodes well for CARAGON (it’s the core of our business) so it makes for a perfect fit! However, he suffers the unfortunate curse of being a Liverpool fan, which means many of his days are spent in sadness, especially around his Manchester United-supporting boss (Garron).
