Fighter, brewer, inter-kingdom master of hospitality, drummer, archer, artist, forager. The Honorable Lord (an onórach tiarna) Ciarán d’alltherian Tostig Ua Baoighill, great defender of the East Kingdom went to his first war during Pennsic 33 at the age of 19. Ciarán fell in love with the clash of fighting, the drums that rang in the night air, the stories and songs told and sang by magical bards around burning bright flames, the variety of merchants, the magical Celts and Vikings that he has now known as his chosen family, among other camps and tribes, the clothing and the arts and sciences that a encompasses the SCA. Ciarán has fought at every war since Pennsic 33 as a mercenary from the Aerie of Tir Thalor, which he became a member of in the field of battle during a thunderstorm that could have been brought down by the likes of Taranis, Thor or Raijin. Ciarán’s encampment has been hired by Clanne Preachain since Pennsic 27. Ciarán’s brother-in-law Elam (Captain of Tir Thalor) introduced him to sword fighting when he was 12 years of age. Elam would talk of Pennsic War, glory and different stories and Ciarán would day dream about creating his own story on the battlefield. Ciarán is no longer a mercenary and has sworn fealty to his knight Jarl Ivan and now fights with the East Kingdom. Ciarán still camps with Tir Thalor and acts as the hiring liason for the camp.
Early Middle Ages 9th-10th century Norse-Gael. Ciarán’s homeland lies in the northwest of Tír Chonaill (County Donegal). Ciarán’s takes his surname from his mothers side of his mundane family, the O’Boyle Clanne of Donegal. Ciarán likes to embrace all true “Celticness”, the amazing migratory transfer of culture throughout pre-historic/ancient Europe. Ciarán loves to combine Hallstatt and La Tene culture into his persona, via adornment’s.
