Glenn Gannon

Glenn Gannon was born at home in 37 Chancery Lane in the heart of the Liberties in Dublin and later moved to Dolphin House and grew up in the Rialto area. From very early in his childhood Glenn showed signs of his artistic ability, painting and drawing seemed to be second nature to him. Glenn did not receive much formal education and is largely self-taught but did receive great gifts of native wisdom from his parents. His mother Roseanna was a gifted seanchai and his father William (Nicky), a World War II veteran, fired his imagination with war-time stories. Glenn married Marie Harris in 1976 and they moved to Clondalkin where they raised both their daughters Cheryl and Carin. Glenn’s first play Tears of a Clown, was funded by the Dept. of Education and premiered in Andrew’s Lane Theatre in 2005 to much critical acclaim. He later followed up with Only Make Believe and his epic play The Trial opened the International Eucharistic Congress in the RDS Concert Hall in 2012. Glenn composed the music and lyrics for the twenty songs from the show. Glenn is also an accomplished actor on stage and screen. In 2011 he played the lead role of IRA Commander Brendan Hughes in the IFTA Award winning film Voices from the Grave. More recently Glenn has turned his hand to direction and has directed several films and stage-plays. For the past fourteen years Glenn has been Dublin Simon Community Ambassador and this continues to be his driving passion and what he considers to be his most important work to date. Glenn’s own experience as a homeless man in Dublin for several years in the late 1990’s instilled in him a desire to help those still in the grip of homelessness and addiction.
