I am delighted to be returning to Siamsa Tíre to be part of Anam and all the styles of dance it is bringing together. I began dancing at the age of six with Rinceoiri Na Riochta, an Irish Dancing school in Tralee, Co. Kerry. Here is where I began my journey with competitive Irish dancing. This has included winning major titles at Munster, All-Ireland, British National, and European Championship level. His greatest achievement to date, is winning three ‘World Irish Dancing Championship’ in Belfast 2006, 2008, and Glasgow 2010.
Siamsa Tire has played a big role in my life since the age of 7, when I first joined the company and was introduced to the traditional Munnix style of dance.

As I joined the company at such a young age, I grew up here and formed a group of friends that are still my friends to this day. Returning to Siamsa to be a part of Anam feels a bit like a home coming and I can’t wait to show everyone what we have been working on.
