Fernando Mahía Vilas

Freelance journalist and translator based in Donostia/San Sebastián. I have a good eye for unknown stories and I am particularly interested in social, sports, historical and politics topics, especially when they can all be mixed in just one article. I can write in Galician, Spanish and English. I have my own car so I have no problem at all with moving around.



Story on CTXT about the Galician fishermen who inmigrated to the district of Trintxerpe, in the Basque Country, and ended up fighting for the Basque Army against fascism in the Spanish Civil War.


Story for El Salto on how the most unionist and working-class areas of Belfast and Derry have worked for the DUP (Democratic Unionist Party) as its main strongholds.


My last collaboration with football and culture magazine Líbero after a trip to Belfast, depicting George Best's heritage in both Catholics and Protestant's imaginary.
