Fiachra O’Regan

Lead Developer

Fiachra joined noelmannion.com back in 2009. Fiachra is the guy who tweaks all the bells and whistles that power our websites. He follows the design direction to a T, and he makes sure that client’s websites and apps are running smoothly and are ready for launch. When he’s not messing with code, he’s a professional strangler of the Uilleann pipes—that’s an ancient Irish musical instrument for the uninitiated—he even makes his own parts for them!
