Fiona Bourke School of Speech and Drama has become synonymous with a high standard of speech and drama training.

Having seen a huge array of talented students being commended year after year by The Irish Board of Speech & Drama and by adjudicators at feiseanna.

Fiona decided to start a Casting Agency in North Mayo.

We work with National and International Casting Directors and Production Companies. Casting directors are always looking for new faces and we are excited to provide them with talented and eager students who would love the chance to live their “dream”


  • We are registered with the Irish Film and Television Network.
  • We also have the advantage of having many fluent Irish speakers on our books, as part of our school is based in the Mayo Gaeltacht
  • Our clients range in age from babies to young adult
  • Acting performance course with the Irish Board of Speech and Drama as part of our syllabus and Acting/voice/camera workshops with leading Theatre company.
Parents/Guardians must accompany students to all auditions


We receive audition breakdowns on a regular basis, and send suitable client’s headshots to be screened by the casting director privately, often only one or two if any of the clients get called up to audition based on their ‘look’.

We do not inform clients when we do this as we may send out many each month. However, when directors are looking for a wide range of artistes with various ‘looks’ and/or experience we will place them on this page. So keep an eye out on our facebook page for auditions & jobs you may be interested in!
