About Cormac Heron

Salthill Media is run by Derry born father, musician and teacher Cormac Heron.


Cormac has been working in the world of media for over 25 years which includes working in London for 15 years. During his time in London Cormac worked in PricewaterhouseCoopers' Knowledge Management team for four years. Consequently he moved to China for another eight years where he taught in some of the country's top international schools as a Performing Arts Teacher.

Cormac moved to Galway in summer 2022. The reason why he chose to live here is because through visiting local family connections Cormac has always enjoyed coming to Galway ever since he was a child.


The best things about Galway for Cormac are the people who live here, the people who visit here and the people who have left the place but still feel a connection with it.

Cormac presents The Galway Podcast and The Ireland Podcast using his artist alias Fender Jackson.
