Tom Golden



How long have you worked at ICON Building Products?

I joined the company in March 2022, so 2 years and counting.


Have you met anyone famous?

I’ve met Jimmy Barry Murphy, if you grew up in Cork in the 70’s and 80’s and you were into sport this man was a superstar. A bigger legend than even Keano!


What was the best concert you’ve seen?

Oasis Cork 1995. They were massive at the time, sun was shining… The tee shirt finally fell apart only recently.


Who’s your favourite comedian?

Sean Locke RIP. Absolutely brilliant!


Do you have any hidden talents?

Lethal Corner Forward, albeit in the very distant past.


Describe your perfect day…

It would be going to a game whether it be a big all Ireland championship or a local club league match and getting a few pints on the way home with friends to replay it.


List the top 3 items on your bucket list…

Drive Route 66, see Cork win an All Ireland final again and finish building the stone wall in the garden. The first one at the moment looks as if it is the most likely to happen!


Tell us about your best holiday…

Cape Clear Island off West Cork. Beautiful scenery with zero wi-fi connection, and mobile reception in only one spot on the Island. The perfect place to unplug from the world!



What 3 things would you take with you to a desert island?

A sunbed, parasol and a Jet Ski. Would just need to make sure that there was enough fuel in the Jet Ski to get me off the Island.
