Patrick Doherty My name is Patrick Doherty, I live in London with my wife Evelyn and have two sons Conor and Josh who are currently at university. Both my Mother and Father were Irish and from County Clare and County Mayo respectively and I was brought up in a close knit working class Irish community in South London, where the Catholic Church and Sydenham Irish club were the centre of our social and spiritual lives. My early years post school, saw me travel and do charity work but I also started on my journey in the corporate world working for 10 years for a marketing and sales organisation in North London. For the last 20 years I have worked on the consulting side in a large firm called Deloitte, which has given me the opportunity to work with some amazing people and organisations around the world. I am passionate about my Irish heritage and the Irish community, I am proud of my Irish roots and family both here and back in Ireland…and American, and Australia…and am very much looking froward to being involved in the London Irish centre in the exciting next stage of its development.
