Cian spinning the discs in Ibiza

Mike McGrath's Charleville

The early promise of a teenage DJ has blossomed into full blown success for Charleville man Cian Bowles (pictured) who is presently home from the clubbing island of Ibiza, and arguably the clubbing capital of the world, where he spends his summers spinning the discs in the island's night clubs.

Cian is a member of the Utter Radio and Recording Studios team of DJ's having first been invited to join the organisation after he came second in a competition some years ago. He travelled to Edinburgh in Scotland to join their radio station there before travelling on to Denmark, to their studio in Café Hope in Hillerod near Copenhagen. There, he worked at their Utter recording studios or on the Utter radio station.

He has also been the DJ at the Common Riding music festival in Hawick Mair near Edinburgh and is also a regular in the Square One Bar.

When in Ibiza Cian has worked in clubs such as Pure, the Highlander and Kittie's Club in San Antonio and in Shenanigan's, the Irish bar on the island. He has also worked on Beach Cruise Radio live streaming with radio presenter Woody Van Eyden of Live from Ibiza Beach Grooves fame.

He is on the decks for the summer season on the iconic holiday island, and is the only Irish man on a team of DJ's, who otherwise hail from Denmark and the UK.

While he is at home Cian keeps abreast of the music trends and works every weekend at Geary's Bar in Charleville, and may also be seen operating the decks at O'Connell's Bar in Main Street, Charleville.

But, come the summer season, he will jet off once again to the sunnier climes if Ibiza.
