A native of Sligo Town, Bobby has been involved in drama for the last 50 years with Coolera Dramatic Society. He has acted, produced and directed in numerous productions of plays and pantomimes with the group.
He is an award winning director on the Drama Festival Circuit, taking part for the last 30 years since 1988. His production of "Who's Life is it Anyway" by Brian Clarke, won the All-Ireland Confined Drama festival in Glenamaddy in 1993. Since then he has directed several plays in the Open Drama Fesival and qualified for Athlone on numerous occasions. The play "Duet for One" by Tom Kempinski came a close second in 2000.
Bobby is probably best know for playing the role of the "Baddie" in the annual pantomime in Sligo. Last year was the 40th anniversary of Coolera Dramatic Society's Panto and Bobby has directed over half of them.
He is also the only member of the society that has performed consecutively on stage for the last 40 years, which is no mean feat.
