Derek first Dublin Secret Street tour guide

Meet Derek, the first member of our team and a co-founder of Secret Street Tours.

As a native of the Liberties, Derek has a wealth of experience and stories to share about one of Dublin’s most vibrant and colourful neighbourhoods. Derek worked in homeless services for many years before experiencing homelessness first hand.

Derek is passionate about all things art and believes this passion is what helped him through some of his lowest points. Derek is excited to be part of the Secret Street Tours team and is looking forward to sharing his story with you.

The next step in Derek’s journey will be to follow his passion of art into further education.

Behind every statistics there are many stories that people have to tell, there’s hurt, there’s pain, there’s so much attached to homelessness that you don’t generally get an opportunity to speak about...
