Tyran Cathlong of the Tribe of Cork is the founder and was the CEO of Silverport Dockyards Limited from 1983 to his abdication in 2009 in favour of his daughter Nora. He laid the foundations on which she built the Company.
In 2016, he was 'reactivated' due to his daughter's pregnancy, taking the reins together with his granddaughter Gwen.
Nowadays, he is mostly an old codger, tending to the garden of Dragan House in Silverport, cooking and reading. His Stobhach is the talk of the region due to his efforts and he has enlisted his granddaughter's help for cider production in the 2017 Season.
He has a very odd friendship with Donald Críonna of the Tribe of Louth.
