Screen Directing Masterclass
1 Day Masterclass
An IFTA-nominated director for Film and TV Drama, Diarmuid is currently Lead Director on the second series of BULLETPROOF for SKY ONE.
Before that he worked on the last two series of the forensic pathology show SILENT WITNESS for the BBC. He was Lead Director on series 3 of Dublin-set police drama RED ROCK for Element Pictures/TV3/BBC.
His early credits include directing on CASUALTY, HOLLYOAKS, and CBBC comedy-dramas DANI'S CASTLE and MILLIE INBETWEEN.
Graduating from The National Film School in 2003, Diarmuid's short film NELL came 3rd in the Best First Short category at the Galway Film Fleadh.
He went on to direct factual and dramatic programming for RTÉ and TG4, Ireland's leading broadcasters, before writing and directing his 2010 short drama CAR PARK. That same year, Diarmuid also directed THE LINE, which The Sunday Times described as 'a slickly executed dystopian drama made with the confident swagger of director Goggins'. JESUS, MARY AND MATTIE was Diarmuid's next drama, a moving adaptation of Patrick Pearse's short story about a man, Mattie, who after his losing his wife, struggles to find any meaning in his life.
