Last Orders: Gav Coughlan

Everyone’s favourite Zero and Emerica clad member of SkateDublin, Gav Coughlan, sorts us out his ‘Last Orders’ this week. He’s also claiming to be heading over our ways in the very, very near future, so if he survives more than a few days sleeping on my floor, there might be quite a bit of new web footage from him appearing on the site. Keep them eyes peeled I guess…
