21 Questions with…Mary O’Mahony

by

Welcome to the fifth of our Fuzion Friday series, where we put 21 devilishly difficult questions to a team member, giving you an insight that Freud would be proud of.

Next up is the shopping-loving, ketchup-hating Mary!

  1. Tell us something about you that nobody else in the team might know. 

I have a phobia of ketchup.. won’t even touch the bottle.

  1. What film have you watched more than five times? 

Loads! I am a serial re-watcher.

  1. What work are you most proud of in the past year? 

Jumping back into agency life and dipping my toe in the corporate side of things for a change. 

  1. Dream job? 

Professional shopper.. for myself 🙂

  1. Favourite brand? – Why? 

Not sure if I’d say favourite brand, but I definitely buy the most from Zara! Although the sizing frustrates the life out of me I always go back. I also find its marketing strategy (particularly the lack of advertising) very interesting..

  1. Favourite Holiday Destination? 

New York in winter.

  1. Best lesson from your career? 

“It’s PR, not ER”

  1. Eurovision or World Cup? 

World Cup 

  1. Who is the joker on the team? 

Ciarán.. at least he tries to be.

  1. Recommend a podcast. 

My Therapist Ghosted Me.

  1. Reality shows – Love or Hate? 

Love some, hate others.

  1. Dinner party with 3 people – dead or alive – who do you invite? 

Freddie Mercury, Princess Diana & Tommy Tiernan.

  1. If you could be anywhere in the world – where would you be & what would you do? 

Perched by a pool in Greece with a cocktail in hand 

  1. Who is your role model? 

No particular role model per se, but I take inspiration from a lot of different people

  1. What was your first job?

Behind the bar in TP Cotter’s in Macroom.

  1. Death Row meal? 

This is tough.. Either a KC’s or Lennox’s

  1. Favourite book? 

Atomic Habits by James Clear.

  1. Your a grammar nazi oar not? 

A little bit, but more recently I have become the victim of it!

  1. First album you bought or downloaded? 

Almost sure it was ‘There’s a Whole Lot of Loving Going On’ by Six.. My sister bought it for me – Ironically, I think I was 6 when it was released!

  1. Work from home – or office? 

80/20 work from home.. No commute is, dare I say, life changing!

  1. Most memorable ad slogans – why? 

Nike ‘Just Do It’. It’s short, straight to the point and communicates the brand’s key message.
