Info about Gerry Murray of Jameson
Gerry Murray was born in the city of Dublin where he lived for five years, before moving to the small town of Navan (pronounced Naaaavan), Co. Meath on the East coast of the country. Apart from this year’s Jameson Brand Ambassador, the town of Navan has produced some familiar names you might know such as Ireland’s top comedian Tommy Tiernan, and Mr. Cool, Pierce ‘James Bond’ Brosnan!
It was here where Gerry discovered his love of Jameson Irish Whiskey. Working in a bar, he was subjected to a wide range of spirits but there was only one for him. He can often be seen with a glass of Jameson Gold in his hand, enjoying that smooth, creamy taste. He was educated in Dublin, attending the Dublin Institute of Technology and University College Dublin. He obtained a Degree and Masters in Marketing during his studies.
His favorite hobbies are Gaelic football and soccer. He learned his trade with Navan O’Mahonys, before getting a transfer to Amsterdam Gaelic Football club last year. It was here in the Netherlands where he also worked as a Brand Ambassador for Jameson, giving whiskey tastings, building relationships with bar staff, organizing Jameson sponsorship for events, and generally just spreading the good word of John Jameson.
He managed to influence some of Amsterdam’s coolest sons and daughters. They were found to be ‘Slammin Jemmies’ all over the city, spreading the word amongst their trendy, cosmopolitan friends. After his year in Amsterdam, Gerry is eager to embark on a bigger challenge of spreading the John Jameson message throughout the United States. However he knows all he needs is a warm handshake with a smile and to live by the Jameson family motto, Sine Metu – Without Fear.
