Eoin O’Mahony is an assistant lecturer in the Dept of Geography at St Patrick’s College / DCU in Dublin. A sociologist by training, he completed a PhD in geography in 2014. The thesis, completed at Maynooth University, was concerned with the places of the secular and the sacred in Ireland.

His research interests are varied including derelict spaces in Dublin city, the politics of warehouse worship space and housing policy. He is hoping to single-handedly break the hegemony of precarious academic labour by tweeting at @ownohmanny.
