Séamus mac Néill Uí Chonchobhair has been a member of the SCA since 2015, but has been playing on and off since his first event in the West in 1992. Mostly off, unfortunately.


  • Séamus is an indiscriminate Irishman of no particular time. He once claimed to be 14th century, but he fights rapier which is 16th century, and plays the Saxon Lyre which is 9th century. He's clearly confused.
  • He drinks, and he knows nothing.

Interests and SCA-related hobbies

  • Brewing: mead, beer, wine, cordials, and now vinegar. But not on purpose.
  • Historical fencing, also known as heavy rapier. Mostly losing spectacularly.
  • Bardic arts: singing, drumming, guitar, scheitholt, Anglo-Saxon lyre. Knows a lot of 20th century power ballads.
  • Period board games: Goose, Nine Mens Morris, Senet. Loses to his youngest child on a regular basis.
  • Target archery, although he never actually practices.
  • Fiber arts: knitting and kumihimo. Pretends to be interested in tablet weaving but let's be real, he doesn't have the time.
  • Pretending to learn new things, or more accurately, falling down rabbit holes on YouTube when he should be at work. Like right now. He should be working and not editing his Wiki page.
