Having reluctantly given up on being a child prodigy, Daire settled on simply being childish and hasn’t looked back since. His first foray into the world of performance was in a dusty basement in University College Dublin. He played a red-headed Irishman in what critics called "a serious stretch of his acting skills". Since then, he has gone on to tread the boards, with(?) or without a script, more often than his Masters degree in Computer Science, Networking & Security would normally permit.
