Michael Galvin


Michael Galvin was born the seventh child in a strict catholic family.
His father had spent several of his early years in a Franciscan monastery as a lay brother before marrying and Michael was the last hope of a deeply religious father to have one of his children take holy orders. Hence, he was pushed heavily in that direction.
Michael did not follow the religious path but built a successful career with dual qualifications in Accountancy and Marketing.
Before forming his own companies, he managed a Newspaper & Media Group and held directorships in several technology companies.
He has been the author of many articles in trade magazines and had short stories read on the radio.
Michael is married with two grown up children and four grandchildren.

When I plucked up enough courage to tell him that I no longer wished to follow that route, I moved on to a state secondary-modern school.
