Paul returned to Waterford in 2006 after almost three decades of working in the international entertainment business. During that time he had animated for such legends of feature animation as Don Bluth, Richard Williams and Ralph Bakshi on movies like "The Land Before Time", "All Dogs Go To Heaven", "Cool World" and "The Thief and The Cobbler". His more recent animation work includes directing the feature Happily N'Ever After and working with Aardman on "The Pirates", "Shaun The Sheep Movie" and "Arthur Christmas".
Since basing himself back in the South East Paul has written (with co-writer Barry Devlin of Horslips fame) and drawn graphic novels which resulted in his acclaimed HOUND trilogy retelling the life and time of Irish mythical hero Cú Chulainn. Hound is being developed into a major live-action feature film with support from The Irish Film Board and Northern Ireland Screen. The limited hardback edition of HOUND is almost sold out and Paul is in talks with international publishers to release a collected paperback edition in the near future. There is also an Irish language edition of all 3 books on release from www.leabharbreac.com

Paul is currently developing a slate of animated feature film with co-creator Barry Devlin, designing a top secret feature film for international clients, recording new music and working on his next comic.
