NICOLA – McMahon

McMahon is a Cork born singer songwriter with a unique storybook of trial, heartbreak and inspiration. It is a journey that is told through his songs as a young All-Ireland Champion gymnast, sponsored rollerblading champion and active ‘free running’, adrenaline fueled sportsman whose world came crashing down in a moment.

That moment was when McMahon survived a serious car accident in 2007. Months of rehabilitation were needed as a result of being thrown through the windscreen and cracking his skull. Following this tragic accident McMahon was left without a sense of smell and blind in one eye. As if this was not enough, he suffered heartbreak shortly afterwards as he and his partner of eight years also went their separate ways.
Of the experience McMahon says, “ it was a very dark time in my life, I literally needed to learn to live again”. He continued, “It was an equally stressful time for my family and closest friends”. However unbeknown to McMahon this time in his life would serve to shape McMahon’s future, in a positive way.
