Born in Athy, Co Kildare, Ireland, Ewan went to Brazil a year in advance of the 2014 World Cup and forgot to come home. And with the Olympics around the corner, why bother at this stage?
A former Irish Sports Writer of the Year, he writes for the Sunday Business Post and Sunday Times and contributes to the New York Times, Bleacher Report and ESPN in the United States, The Independent and The Blizzard in the United Kingdom and The Examiner in Ireland along with radio stations Newstalk and Today FM. He has also written the autobiographies of Kenneth Egan, Bill O’Herlihy, Oisín McConville and Darragh Ó Sé and is currently working on a book about the Copa Libertadores (although he’s famously slow with these things).
Feel free to contact him at email@example.com or at twitter.com/EwanMacKenna but be warned, he’s the sort that wears a cowboy hat.
