Jobless Paddy Interview: Feilim Mac an Iomaire

Feilim Mac an Iomaire hit the headlines in Ireland in May when he spent the last of his savings, two thousand euro, on a billboard.

The billboard campaigned for potential employers to save “Jobless Paddy” from emigration.

Mac an Iomaire was offered five jobs and now works as a communications executive for Paddy Power.

In a telephone interview, Mac an Iomaire discusses emigration, how he came up with the idea for the billboard and his advice for those who are faced with emigration.
