Broken Sword Wiki

Eamon O'Mara is an Irish BBC news reporter who came to Glastonbury in order to do some research for his TV Show; Up Your Alley with Eamon. Eamon visits villages, interviews local people to help with his TV show. He got his job apparently while reading a book at a bookstore in London, when one of the producers saw him and hired him right away.


Eamon is proud of his heritage and isn't ashamed to show it. He loves poetry more than anything especially ones from his country Ireland, and he hates it when people duplicate poetry calling it their own. 

Eamon dislikes English military types, which he fleetingly explains to George to be because of England's extensive occupation of Ireland during the last several hundred years.  

George Stobbart first met Eamon sitting outside The Glastonbury Pub waiting for it to open. Eamon assists George twice in the game. When he becomes angered after realizing that Hillage has plagiarized famous Irish poets allowing George to sneak upstairs in Hillage's apartment, and helps George rescue Bruno when the Dragon Cult tries to kill him.
