Martin Maguire, Chair
I’m originally from Dublin and have been living in Cloughjordan since 2007. I have worked in theatre and performance as a writer, actor, director, teacher and adjudicator in Ireland, Scotland, Belgium, France, USA and Sri Lanka. I’ve performed in many venues around the country and taken roles in many popular tv series.
I am a former member and former chair of Castaway Actors Agency. I have been associated with the Gaiety School of Acting for more than twenty five years and I’m a former reader for the Abbey Theatre. In 2018 I set up Theatre on The Edge in Cloughjordan, which has produced two original pieces of work with social and political themes, working with a mixture of local performers, professional and amateur.
For the last three years I have been working with writers and actors in The Source theatre in Thurles on a series of projects with a view to developing new talent and building towards producing full productions of indigenous theatre.
I am a former board member and chair of Cloughjordan Ecovillage and I’m a current board member of the Cloughjordan Ecovillage Service company.
