Carlow All Time Greats: Profile #1 Kevin Brady

Kevin Brady, 32, is self-employed and in 2018, following over a year of research and development, he launched the Visit Carlow mobile app.

This new app promotes everything there is to see and do in County Carlow and has become a firm favourite among Carlovians and tourists alike.

To date, the community app has been downloaded in over 20 countries as far afield as China, India, Australia, USA, Canada

It is a free platform for local communities, events and businesses to promote themselves to locals and tourists too.

In recent years, he has also become heavily involved in the festival scene in Carlow and has helped to develop the Carlow Town St Patrick's Day Parade into what will this year become a two day festival of music and entertainment for all the family.

Last year he created a completely new festival at Halloween entitled, "Scarefest" which was a huge success and plans are already underway in preparation for "Scarefest 2019".
