“Believable, Smooth, Versatile, Native Irish Speaker”


Hi there!

With 16 years of experience in Irish language voiceovers for cartoons, documentaries, books, live action movies and state examinations, I'm looking to bring together my blend of Dublin English and Munster Irish to create an all in one for those seeking clear, consistent voiceovers for continuity work, bilingual projects etc...or indeed voiceovers in either language if my voice fits what you're looking for!

With my fully equiped home studio, I can deliver professional quality audio with a quick turnaround.

The following are among the characters I've played over the years in Irish Language television:

Kappa Mikey – Guano
Rekkit Rabbit – Rekkit
Justice League – J’Onn J’Onzz
Teen Titans – Robin
Muppets Tonight – Seymour the Elephant
Dude, That's my Ghost - Rajeev
Chop Socky Chooks – Chuckie Chan
Ben 10 – Stinkfly, Echo Echo
Big Bear and Squeak – Big Bear (Musical Vocal)
Flea Bitten – Itch– E– Flea
Legend of the Dragon – Xuan Chi
Power Rangers – Blue, Green, Black in various series
Angelo Rules – Minetti
Angela Anaconda – Gordy Reinhart
The Life and Times of Juniper Lee – Theme Tune Vocals
……and many more :)

Company: ESPN Inc

Position: Producer

Project: ESPN SportsCenter Mayweather-Pacquiao Tease (aka Dream)

Summary: I had the great pleasure of working with Donal on a rather large project for ESPN in April of 2015. I was in charge of producing a high end element that was going to run during SportsCenter’s On the Road Coverage of the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao Super fight that took place on May 2nd 2015 in Las Vegas. In search of a different “voice” for this project, I stumbled upon Donal’s previous work and was immediately intrigued. I had submitted a query to Donal and almost instantly heard back from him about his willingness to work on the project. He offered to read a couple sample lines of my script, so I could be sure he was what I was looking. Within only a few hours of supplying him with the few lines, he had already tracked and provided me with different inflections of the read, giving me plenty to work with; this cemented my decision on wanting to have Donal be a part of this piece. Donal was a constant professional at all times when we worked together, giving me multiple reads, so I had a variety to work with. He needed very few instructions, as I only needed to provide a few examples and he knew exactly what I was looking for. For those of us who have produced pieces that require a dramatic voice over, know the importance of a great read, as well as other factors that go into producing pieces such as a tease or promo. Donal took A LOT of stress of my plate by being timely, communicating frequently and being a stand up professional in putting a lot of hard work into his read. For this, I’m more than certain that I will work with Donal again and recommend him to anyone looking for voice over work.
