Over the next ten years he appeared in over 30 movies culminating in the multi– award winning film OMAGH for which he received 4 awards. Joel Schumacher cast him as John Gilligan in VERONICA GUERIN with Cate Blanchett, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and lately he has done a series for TG4 in the Irish language.
