While many paranormal investigators found fame following their appearances in Ghost Hunters, Barry is one of the few exceptions. Barry was already well-known in the paranormal society way before his association with The Atlantic Paranormal Society. During his early years, Barry was associated with two paranormal groups in Ireland. Impressed by his skills, Jason invited Barry to work with him in TAPS. This led to regular appearances in Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International. Not only is Barry one of the best paranormal investigators around, but he is also an author and has written his fair share of books. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Barry Fitzgerald.
Barry Fitzgerald was born in 1972 in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. Born and raised in Ireland, Barry was interested in paranormal occurrences from a young age. For all his interests, Barry has not revealed if there was any specific incident that led him to ghost hunting. Growing up, Barry preferred solo investigation and tried solo investigations for quite a while. But he eventually joined a paranormal society operating within Ireland. By the time TAPS and Jason Hawes came knocking, Barry was a part of two different paranormal societies.
It remains unclear as to when Barry joined the TAPS Team. However, his first appearance in Ghost Hunters came in 2006. The episode was entitled Attack of the Irish Elemental, and served as an introductory episode for Barry. This was the third episode of the sixth season, and Barry had to wait another year for his next appearance. Since 2007, Barry started making regular appearances as part of the TAPS team.
In 2008, Barry was asked to lead the paranormal team in the spin-off series, Ghost Hunters International. The series began airing on January 9, 2008, and followed the team to several haunted locations across Europe. Barry co-led the team alongside Kris Williams and Robb Demarest. Barry made appearances in all 56 episodes of the series. The final episode aired on the 4th of April, 2012. After wrapping up Ghost Hunters International, Barry left the Ghost Hunters Franchise and focused on his work as an author and photographer.

Life after Ghost Hunters
After leaving Ghost Hunters, Barry has taken up the study of Irish History and Lore. Over the years, Barry has worked on Neolithic tombs which led to a rumor that Barry had disappeared. The rumor was heard in 2016, but Barry denied the claim on the podcast Stirring the Cauldron hosted by Marla Brook. Barry has also worked on his fair share of documentaries including The Serpents Mound, The Mysterious Bodies of Peru Pt1, and The Star that Fell.
