Patrick Daly Interlinks Podcast


An Irishman in Barcelona

In this episode of Interlinks we talk to to Neal Shanahan, a Dubliner who has been living and working in Spain since 1989, firstly in the cities of Oviedo and Gijon in Asturias, which lies on the northern Atlantic coast of Spain, and since the turn of the century in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia in the northeast of the country on the Mediterranean Coast.

In Barcelona, Neal owns and operates a personal training studio and sports massage room in a suburban neighbourhood and works with clients of all ages and from all walks of life.

This is a privileged position that gives him great insight into people’s thoughts and concerns about their health and fitness as well as what they think about what is going on in the wider world.

In this conversation we discuss these topics as well as getting Neal's perspective on Ireland after over thirty years living in another country.
