Cillian tells the stories he’s heard and the ones he’s made up. The
style and substance thereof is tempered to the special interests of his
audience and runs the gamut from myth and legend to anecdote and
yarn taking in the classic, the contemporary and the cracked.
Being of broad mind, Cillian refuses to discriminate and will tell
stories to anyone who will sit still long enough to listen to them.
Cillian has performed at the Listowel Writers’ Festival and at the
Cape Clear Storytelling Festival. His particular interest in the Irish
Language spurred him on to found ReRá – a monthly storytelling
night in Cork City – where he can be seen most regularly. The
stories he has told there are archived on the dedicated website
To supplement his more serious storytelling, Cillian also does
standup comedy in both Irish and English. His most notable success
in this field was a series of appearances on the TG4 production, ‘An
Gaeilgeoir is Greannmhaire’.
