About Us

Welcome to The Wild Rover, where the pub experience comes to life on wheels! We are a team of passionate individuals who believe that good times and unforgettable memories are meant to be shared. Allow us to introduce ourselves:

Des O'Connor, a proud native of Fethard in Co. Tipperary, Ireland, has always cherished the warm and inviting atmosphere of Irish pubs. After pursuing his college education in Dublin, Des embarked on a journey that led him to the United States. While initially planning for a short stay, fate had other plans. Des has now called the U.S. his home for the past 35 years.


Tom Naughton, born and raised in the vibrant city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has a zest for adventure and a deep appreciation for community. After completing his education in Michigan, Tom's path led him to join the United States Marine Corps, where he made a career in Marine Intelligence. Tom's love for his hometown eventually drew him back. Now settled with his family, he brings his passion for creating memorable experiences to The Wild Rover.

Together, Des and Tom form the dynamic team behind The Wild Rover. They have transformed the traditional pub experience into a mobile adventure. With their expertise and attention to detail, they ensure that every moment spent at The Wild Rover is filled with laughter, camaraderie, and a touch of Irish magic.
