Kilian Doyle is assistant news editor with The Irish Times. While his main focus has been irishtimes.com, he has also written extensively for the newspaper on everything from gourmet visits to El Bulli to surfing in the depths of winter off the Atlantic coast of Ireland. He wrote the Emissions column in the motoring section for the best part of a decade, before the car market collapsed and people stopped caring about such fripperies. He sold his beloved vintage BMW and now rides a bicycle. It’s Italian.
