Gerard McNamara

The Kilmarnock Collection

Gerard McNamara - Composed by John C Grant (https://johncgrant.com). Traditional composer from Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland.

Gerard McNamara is the youngest of the Ayr Road McNamaras of Galston. Gerard now lives with partner Claire Balmer in Bonnyton, Kilmarnock. Gerard plays the tenor banjo.

As a whisky lover, it’s apt that Gerry became the Engineering Stores Manager at Wm Grants Whisky Plant in Bellshill. This also has given him access to barrel staves. With the help of his nephew Ryan McNamara, he recycles these staves to make everything from coat stands to bottle openers.
