After selling up and leaving the channel behind him, he became part owner of a number of entertainment establishments, including a restaurant and some pubs. One of which is the Pembroke Castle, Wildman Gallagher’s favourite watering hole. So, with all those rock star’s drinking and fighting in his pub, how’s Thuiller adjusting to the world of pumped up egos and attitude problems? After running a reseller business he’s unlikely to have noticed much of a difference. We at The Register would like to run a regular series of Where Are They Now columns and we need your help.
