Magician Shane Gillen has his first major public performance in Tullamore this weekend at the Wolftrap.

Shane who was educated at Colaiste Choilm, Tullamore and Trinity College, Dublin is a former Rotary Club Youth Endeavour winner who has moved effortlessly from script writing to performing. Shane’s expertise is card and mind magic. He specializes in close-up table-to-table magic, and has dabbled in stage work. He is progressively getting more-and-more into the mind control mentalism area. He has done magic for some very prestigious clients - including Kelsey Grammer and Denzel Washington and most recently performed magic both backstage at the Meteor Ireland Music Awards and at the afterparty, as well as in the VIP section and backstage at Lady Gaga’s show in The O2 in London.

Journalist Shay Healy dubbed Shane as an ‘exciting new master of legerdemain’, and Shane has quickly climbed the ranks within the entertainment industry over the last couple of years. This Saturday night’s performance at the Wolftrap is an opportunity not to be missed.
