John Creedon, winner of the reality TV hit, ‘Fáilte Towers’ is no overnight success.

He currently produces and presents “The John Creedon Show” on weekdays on RTE Radio 1 and is also filming a new TV series for RTE 1.
The popular Corkman has been an adjudicator at The Hot Press Rock Awards, The Dublin Theatre Festival, and last year picked up a ‘Fairplay for Airplay Award’ for his support of the Irish Music Industry.
John has also presented numerous live radio and TV simulcasts including “The Dublin International Piano Competition,” “Musician of the Future” from the National Concert Hall Dublin and “Messiah” for Channel 4.
John Creedon’s work has brought him to the Middle East, Africa, China, India, Australia, The Arctic Circle and all over Europe and North America. His great passions include theatre, live music, travel, gardening, angling, natural history and sport (particularly, following his beloved Cork City FC in the National League).
Recently John received a Diploma in Regional Studies and Folklore at University College Cork and has studied Gaeilge Labhartha (Spoken Irish) at UCC and traditional flute at Cork School of Music.
