Richie’s first introduction to Irish dancing was at the age of 7, when he attended a class at the Higgins Academy in Waterford, Ireland.

Richie has many accolades in Irish dance over the last 12 years, including All Ireland, British National, North American and World Championship titles. He has also won his regional qualifiers 11 years in a row.

Richie enjoys Irish music as well as dance, and attended the University of Limerick to study the two, under the tutorage of Orfhlaith  Ní Bhríain and Niall Keegan.

‘Murphy’s Celtic Legacy‘ was Richie’s first international show, when he joined the original cast in 2015. Since then, Richie has performed on all the ‘Murphy’s Celtic Legacy‘ tours and is looking forward to be continuing this run on the 2019 North America Tour.
