About Hemp Ireland

I worked as a professional radio broadcaster back in the 80's, during the "Pirate Radio era". Early 90's brought me to New York City, where I dug up footpaths, felted roofs, poured concrete everywhere and anywhere and painted the walls of luxury apartments in downtown Manhattan. Late '93, I moved to Los Angeles, where I worked in professional communications, marketing and later as an event technician. I am experienced in marketing, promotions, graphic design, web design, events, social media, video production, radio podcasts, YouTube videos and "Live streaming". Until a few months ago, I knew nothing about hemp. I don't have products to sell, I don't own a farm or grow anything... Forgive me, for I have launched this site unfinished.
