He played water polo for Cathal Brugha and Ireland and represented the British Universities at the World Student Games in 1987 in Zagreb, Yugoslavia.

Ciarán played hurling and football for O’Donovan Rossa, and played in the All-Ireland club hurling final in 1989, unfortunately losing to Buffers Alley of Wexford.

He played for Antrim in both football (Ulster minor champions in 1983) and hurling, and was the losing captain in the 1989 All-Ireland Final.
