Generally speaking, Paul's style of playing can be described as a "northern style" (from the north of Ireland). Some of his favourite listening would be, among others, the playing of John Doherty and Tommy Peoples.

Influences from Clare, Leitrim, Sligo and Fermanagh can also be heard in Paul's playing, as well as an element of piping.

Paul's main influences in learning the fiddle were firstly his own brothers - Joe and Dominic, both fiddle players who placed a great importance on timing and tone. Another strong influence was the fiddler Josephine Keegan, who was strict about learning the basics correctly.
