Barry hails from Donegal and is one of the main organisers of the Rory Gallagher festival there every year. Apart from organising music festivals, and working in RTÉ Sport, Barry is also a local councillor in Ballyshannon.

He knows the road from Donegal to Dublin better than anyone as he travels in his Ford, and regularly listens to Daniel O'Donnell CDs to keep him entertained on the journey (when he's not head banging to Rory Gallagher).

A Donegal fan naturally, Baz also supports Finn Harps.
