About Me

Hello there. General Kenobi! I joke. I’m Cian, the rambler of Rathpeacon. Since writing my first book in primary school about a revolutionary circus at the age of seven the writing bug has been a part of me. Combining that with a love of music, movies and examining my journey with mental health, the Rathpeacon Rambler blog has grown slowly but steadily over the last few years. Check out some of my favourite pieces I’ve written on the left, as well as my weekly podcast!
