Colm won a music scholarship to attend University College Dublin, where he was conferred with an honors Degree in Music and Irish in 2011.

In addition to these team sports Colm has also completed several triathlons. He loves travel and new experiences and has travelled widely both with his music career and with the charity Habitat for Humanity, where he has worked building houses with local communities in Ghana and Zambia.

Since graduating college in 2011, music has continued to be the main focus in Colm’s life. He is currently honing his skills as a songwriter and a performer and has eclectic musical influences, drawing from his Choral, Irish, Pop and Folk backgrounds, all helping him develop his own style. Colm was invited to join Celtic Thunder by producer Sharon Browne in May 2012 and was delighted to join with the other principals Keith, Ryan, Neil and Emmett. Colm first performed with Celtic Thunder at Harrah’s Resort and Casino in Atlantic City in June of 2012 and subsequently toured with the Celtic Thunder in the US and Canada fall tours in 2012 and 2013. 2014 saw Colm’s first Australia tour – Celtic Thunder Mythology, he also returned to the US with the Celtic Thunder in the Fall of 2014 for the Symphony Tour and was onboard the Celtic Thunder Cruise 2014 in November that sailed to Bahamas and the private island of Thunder Bay.
