Born and raised in Tallaght, he grew up supporting the local team, Shamrock Rovers. He would go to the matches with his father every now and then.
He played football all through his youth and eventually made the trials for Shamrock Rovers. He had made sacrifices to achieve this like cutting loose some of his close friends as they were getting involved in bad business.
One year his team went to South Zagoria to play a friendly against FC Elektrozavodsk. After the match some of the team stayed an extra week to sight see and travel more as they may never get the chance again to be in the country. Cillian being one of these.
When they arrived back at their B&B from one of their hikes they noticed shit was quiet. When they went into town for a few pints they were attacked by a mob of "dead" locals. Cillian and another fled for their lives.
He now survives with regretful thoughts lingering his mind for not going home with the rest of his team.
