In 1989 the first Yeats Festival was held in Dublin, directed by Prof. James Flannery with the contribution of Bill Whelan (music, Riverdance) and Ciarán as the legendar Irish hero Cuchulain. The five years festival was a tremendous success since its first year. This three part Interview attempts to tell W.B. Yeats' story and how the festival was brought to its excistence (part one), the story of the team and the participants (part two) and finally how Ciarán became a somehow strange and striking Cuchulain.
The Seafarer occupies a prominent place in the history of this website. It was during a trip to New York by a member of the current team and after her first encounter with Ciarán that the project of the website has been launched.
Ciarán is the best Caesar we've ever seen, reserved, dignified, with a charm of his own, a very subtle touch of humour and a smile one cannot easily forget. Yet, he does not look like Caesar: his eyes are green and not black and he has too much hair. Nevertheless, he was perfect in the role and the last episode of the first season was absolutely heartbreaking with its silent violence and the unspeakable pain of betrayal in Caesar's eyes (using his eyes is what Ciarán does best).
