Cian mac Conmara became involved with the S.C.A. in 1981, after high school graduation. He lived in what would become the Shire of Mugmort within the Barony of Middle Marches in the Middle Kingdom. He was one of the first (uncredited) A&S Officers of the Shire. He moved to the Marche of Tirnewydd where his connection to the S.C.A. was cemented.
Cian traveled and lived, for a short time, in Crystal Crags within the Barony of Sentinels Keep of the Kingdom of Artemisia and in the Shire of Sangre del Sol of the Kingdom of Trimaris, before finally settling in Atenveldt. While in Atenveldt, Cian lived in the Barony of Atenveldt, and later moved to the (former) Shire of Nathair Airgid, where he served as an A&S Officer and as Seneschal. Cian returned to the Barony of Atenveldt after the Shire was disbanded.
Lord Cian mac Conmara was born in County Clare, Ireland at the end of the 10th century. He was kidnapped as a child by the Danish Vikings that frequently invaded Clare and brought up as a healer, an herbalist, by the family that adopted him. He moved with his new family to Yorkshire in Danelaw, a region of northern and eastern England, in the early 11th century.
Cian's surname is a contraction of "Mac Cú Na Mara" meaning "Son of the Hound of the Sea". The name began with the chieftain Cumara, a contracted form of Conmara, of Maghadhair in county Clare, Ireland.
Cian was awarded an AoA by Áilgheanán and Amber in 2017.
