I have just finished my five concerts with Mike Denver, I was his special guest on the shows. Mike and his wonderful band and all the sound guys and management were just such a pleasure to work with. I must say I really enjoyed it all, meeting the people again is so wonderful, thank you all concerned for making me happy.
I feel so blessed with the wonderful gift God has given me.
This year I am celebrating 55 years in the music business and I start the very first of my six special concerts in the Lyrath Estate Hotel, Kilkenny on the 16th April. I feel blessed to have Trudi Lalor and Billy Morrissey taking care of all the promotion and arranging of these six special shows.
I can honestly say I have felt very disillusioned over the past few years about the music business in almost every aspect, however Trudi and Billy have made me believe in myself again.
I am really looking forward to my own shows and meeting up with fans and friends over these next few months.
Tg4 are doing a special 55 year show on June 15th in the Millenium Forum, Derry, to be broadcast later this year.
My Brother Daniel will be presenting the show and Shunie Crampsie will be my special guest so I have a lot to look forward to.
It is lovely to have the brighter evenings now, such a stretch in the days.
I enjoy spending time in my garden it is so relaxing and satisfying and I get some exercise also. Most days I like to walk around our beautiful Lake here in Castleblayney, at the moment the bluebells are ready to flower and that is a sight to see.
Thank you from my heart to all the great fans and friends that I have.
Until the next time

I cannot believe that it is March already, where did those months go since Christmas, for me they just seemed to fly by.
I know some parts of the Country had a snowfall but here in Castleblayney we have been lucky up until now, but this month isn’t out yet.
I am so pleased that my latest album is doing really well and getting plenty of airplay, especially “Fly Me West” and “Have You Got Time”.
“Fly Me west” is on D.V.D. and you can view it on youtube along with another track “Have You Got Time” which was filmed by Steve and Daniel Bloor.
I have done two of my concerts with Mike Denver and have another three shows this month in Armagh, Cavan and Killarney. I always enjoy going to the .I.N.E.C. in Killarney, I will be there again in August with my own show and I have some guests on with me.
As I am celebrating 55 years in the music business, each of the concerts will be special. If someone had told me when I started out singing at the tender age of nearly thirteen that I would be still out there singing I would never have believed them.
I often wonder if I had become a nurse which is what I wanted to do when I left school where would my journey have taken me, a totally different road, but then I think of all of my fans and friends who have been with me down throughout my career and it gives me a great feeling of satisfaction in my life.
I hope to meet up with many of you over the coming months, and I want to thanks you all for your support throughout my career.
until the next time take
First of all I would like to say how overwhelmed I am with the lovely comments about my new video “Fly Me West” which was filmed by Daniel and Steve Bloor around Lough Muckno in Castleblayney, the Lake has been a popular place for filming many videos, Big Tom, Ciaran Rosney and myself filmed around the area, it is beautiful and so peaceful, and there are beautiful walks around the park. In the bluebell season people come from all around to see the lovely sight, just a carpet of blue, a sight to behold.
Daniel and Steve Bloor also shot another two videos, filmed in a local location which I am really thrilled about. ‘Have You Got Time” and ‘A Million Reasons” all three songs are on my new C.D. which will be released by my record company at the beginning of February. There are 16 Tracks including “Grace” “The Parting Glass’ Tipperary Far Away, my tribute songs to both my dearest friends Jean Shepard and Liz Anderson, it has been four years since I last had an album released so this is special for my 55 year celebrations.
I have five concerts with Mike Denver the first show is on Friday 1st February in the Carrickdale, Dundalk, Co. Louth, I was also there last year with Mike and I really enjoyed it.
It is really lovely that people ring or text to say they will be at some of the shows and I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
As I am celebrating 55 years in the music business, Trudi Lalor who is also a wonderful singer has arranged five Margo concerts with special guests, including Brendan Shine, Declan Nerney and Keelan Arbuckle. The first concert is Tuesday 16th April in The Lyrath Estate Hotel, Kilkenny. it will be the first time I have done a show there so I am looking forward to the new venue which is set in beautiful surroundings.
I look forward to meeting up with fans and friends over the coming months.
Until the next time, take care and be kind to one another.
I would like to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year, also good health and happiness in 2019.
I hope you all had a very Happy Christmas, it seemed to have just passed by so quickly.
I had visitors in my home for a week and that was really nice.
I will be starting the first of my five concerts in February with Mike Denver, looking forward to working with Mike, he is such a gentleman.
I will post updates soon.
