productions & background experience

Richie Conroy has written and directed television for Disney, RTE, BBC, TG4 and Setanta Sports. Specialising in comedy and animation, some of Richie’s credits include Fran, Fair City, Roy, Zombie Hotel and The Ugly Duckling and Me.

Session Details

Richie is available to work with a full class or in smaller groups. Richie believes that the tools for storytelling are inherent in all students and he uses his own produced (age-appropriate) episodes which have been broadcast on TV to draw out the Students knowledge of characters, story and plot. Interactivity is emphasised to encourage the Students own creativity.

Age Group Details

Sessions can be tailored for any age groups as I have experience writing for pre-school to adults.

Availability Details

Available all year round.
