Meetup with Eddy Carroll, Neil Cafferkey, Niall Ó’Brollchain and Brendan Smith

At Amiga Ireland 2018 we had the pleasure of meeting with some influential and inspiring people. Eddy Carroll gifted SnoopDOS to the world while Neil Cafferkey is a core AROS developer. Niall Ó’Brollchain created the first commercially sold game in Ireland which was Hitman for the Commodore 64. Brendan “Speedie” Smith is the curator for the Computer & Communications Museum of Ireland. The museum is located in Galway and has a Commodore section there with active maintainers and plenty of visitors.
