Mark O'Rowe was born in 1970 in Dublin, Ireland, to parents Hugh and Patricia O'Rowe. (To whom he dedicated his 1999 play, Howie the Rookie) He grew up in Tallaght, a working class suburb in the west of Dublin, and he claims that much of the violence in his work stems from watching and rewatching a tremendous amount of violent, bloody movies when he was in his teens.
