Damian O’Callaghan | Director

Originally from Cork, Damian O’Callaghan has lived in Killarney for the past 21 years. He worked as a Jarvey in The Killarney National Park for most of that time.

Damian trained as a actor at The Bricriú Theatre Company. In 1991 he wrote his first play ”Tradition” for The Bricriú, which he directed and starred in.

Damian took some time out of acting and directing in 2002 to complete a Business Degree at The Shannon College of Hotel Management. After graduating with honours, he set up OC Productions and wrote and directed the play ‘Let’s be Frank’, which was shown in Tralee’s Síamsa Tíre National Theatre.

Making the move from stage to screen, he then produced the short film ‘Bouncers’, which was in the official selection of The Cork and Kerry film festivals.

‘The Gift’ was Damian’s debut feature film and it has been screened at the Kerry Film Festival and the World of Film Festival – Glasgow, it then was broadcasted nationwide on RTE.

Damians second Feature film TRADITION has been released on the festival circuit and has already garnered critical acclaim, after its gala opening premiere at The Kerry Film Festival and at the Chicago Irish Film Festival in February 2109.
