Daniel has extensive experience working with clients in a variety of areas.
A proud young Clareman who has kicked ball for his club and county, Daniel has put together a most impressive body of work in establishing this museum and expect great things in the years to come from this fine historian.
Daniel is a professional business partner who I would endorse anytime.
Daniel’s level of professionalism and commitment greatly helped us in the production of ‘Clondegad – An Irish Heritage Guide’. Once the project outline was decided, Daniel took full control and managed the creative design, editorial and final production stages with a fine balance of expert professionalism and active listening, always keeping the project goals, project quality and customer needs in focus.
Daniel McCarthy couples an impressive range of references with a tangible sense of place in his 2000 dissertation on County Clare in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The same strengths, namely breadth of knowledge and imaginative engagement, inform his work on sport history, notably ‘Citizen Cusack and Clare’s Gaelic Games’ . Here he shows a thorough familiarity with institutional history and the many shades of green that made up the early G.A.A. enlivened by folkloric and literary references.
We are proud to commend Daniel and his team for their dedication, skillsets and work on this stirring tribute to our Patriot dead.
Without Daniel’s energy, knowledge and drive this project could not have succeeded.
As a Board member of the Irish Heritage Foundation of Gettysburg, I contracted with Daniel McCarthy, owner of the Boru Cultural Enterprises to provide the the Burren Display for the Adams County Irish Festival. His work was very precise and the transaction handled easily and timely. I highly recommend his work to others and would not hesitate to use his services in the future.
Daniel has a great understanding of how Community Voluntary Organisations work and is ever willing to advise and help such groups. He has a professional outlook, is very co-operative and his work is of an extremely high quality. I have no hesitation in recommending such an honest, hard working, decent man, particularly to those involved in the heritage/tourism industry.
Working with Daniel was a very positive experience. He delivered over and above what was expected.
We are delighted that in one of our own we found a world class heritage practitioner to grow and realise our vision for Lissycasey Heritage Trail.
I whole heartedly recommend Danny because I have had the pleasure of working with him on a number of projects. He is a very determined hard worker and an incredibly professional researcher. My highest recommendation is that I fully intend to work with him again on other projects.
We at GAR Media have found Dan McCarthy to be a committed and passionate communicator, driven by his love for the history of the Irish. He has a broad depth of knowledge of his native country’s heritage, understands how to use traditional and developing media to best serve his client’s objectives, and is unstinting in his efforts on behalf of Irish history. He is visionary in his efforts to make this history, not only accessible, but appealing, to all, from casual reader to devotee.
Daniel is an extremely efficient and professional editor who was a pleasure to work with.I would highly recommend Daniel for any job that he decides to take on.
Have attended all the events and bought the books (see below), I find in Daniel a true Gael. His enthusiasm for his county, its history and culture is infectious. I commend him for his adventurous altruism and a lifelong dedication to his craft.
