Hey, I’m Darragh. I began my acting career at the age of 12 on BBC’s Tracy Beaker and now I’m an independent filmmaker and BBC Writer, pleasure to meet you. Now the intros are out of the way, please allow me to boast about my first love, Newport.

Having been born and then raised from inside the city walls, I’m just about qualified to give an “insider’s guide” to the city, shouting to the world about all of Newport’s modestly priced (and sometimes free) attractions.
