Editors' Picks

booth during Alive After Five, and a couple of us


staffers were lucky enough to be within earshot as Kiely, plastic cup of beer in his hand, regaled us with tales of his homeland and musings on the state of the newspaper as a valid news medium in this increasingly digital age. It's not just Kiely's brogue that makes us want to lend him our ears for hours on end; he's as thoughtful as he is thought-provoking, and we're honored to have one of the Emerald Isle's sons among us for as long as we're lucky enough to have him.
