Late Late Country Show

Hello Everyone

What a great night we all had at the Late Late Country Show last Friday.  Hosted by Ryan Tubridy it was a night to remember and cherish.

So many artists appeared on the night, with a special appearance from Charlie Pride, Charlie Lansborough and Big Tom.  I was really honoured to take part in the Country Show.

I am looking forward to Monday 1st May in the Clanree Hotel, Letterkenny where I will be joining Sean Cuddy and a host of singers for what will be a great night of entertainment and fun.

Tuesday 2nd May I will be appearing at the Hot Country Awards in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Co. Cavan, another night not to be missed.

Wednesday 10th May in the Clonmel Park Hotel, Tipp F.M’s. Premier Country Music Concert will be in full swing starting at 8.00 p.m. I will be one of the many artists that will be entertaining that night.

These few dates are all I have planned for now.

Not much news from me at the moment.

Take care

Love always

My little tribute to the late Gene Stuart

I wanted to share this with you,  I wrote this for Gene Stuart’s Tribute Concert in Co. Tyrone  on the 6th March

In a friendly little Parish in the County of Tyrone
Lived a Giant in Country Music loved by one and all
To all of us who knew him Gene sure had a way
Of singing pure old Country we all love until this day

Gene he was a simple man too soon he went away
He and I we had a friendship that is with me to this day
His songs live on forever and in memory we recall
The man that was Gene Stuart a Legend to us all.

Hello everyone

Hi Everbody

Just keeping in touch and letting you know I am alive and kicking.

I had the great pleasure on the 24th February of doing a Concert in The Strand Hotel, Ballyliffin way up in my native Co. Donegal and it was wonderful to be able to give money from the show to Cancer and M.S.

Last night 6th March I sang at a Remembrance Concert  in Co. Tyrone for the wonderful Singer Gene Stuart who passed away last year. Gene was a true gentleman and  a great and loyal friend.

A host of Artists took part, Philomena Begley, Brian Coll, T.R.Dallas, Tony Allen, Muriel Day, Mike Denver and the big man himself Big Tom and many more. Michael Commins from Midwest Radio was also  there, it was hosted by Fr. Brian Darcy and Hugo Duncan.

It was a wonderful night and I know Gene would be proud, May he Rest in Peace.

Till the next time, stay safe and be kind to each other

Love always

Surprise Guest at Gala Dinner Dance

A fabulous night in the Great Northern Hotel, Bundoran on Sunday for Sean Cuddy’s Gala Dinner Dance, it was part of a long weekend with entertainment every day and night. Sean invited me to be a surprise special guest, I really enjoyed the night. Thank you Sean for the beautiful flowers and the Genesis gifts.

Many people travelled from all over Ireland, England and Scotland for the weekend. I saw many people I had not seen for many years.

I sang a few songs including James Connolly which is requested everywhere I go, I told a few jokes and then sat down and enjoyed the evening.

Thank you Sean for inviting me.

Hot Country Awards Night

Hello everyone

What a fabulous night in the Mullingar Park Hotel  for the “Hot Country Awards” There was so much talent on stage, some newcomers to the music business which is so good to see. Myself, Philomela Begley, Mary Duff, Bernie Heaney, Trudi Lawler, Lisa McHugh, Nathan Carter, Jimmy Buckley, Derek Ryan, Declan Nerney, Marc Roberts, Crystal Swing and many other artists, all received an Award for their contribution to the music business.

I was honoured to receive two Awards, “Irish Country Music Hall Of Fame & Celebrating 50 Years In The Music Business” and “Album, D.V.D. & Book Combination “Promise And The Dream”

I was so happy that my cousin Oliver Bracken from Bayonne, New Jersey and his brother and sisters were my guests on the night. Thank you Oliver for making my night extra special.

I am going to Fatima with Sr. Consilio from “Cuan Mhuire”, it is a place where I have not been to so I will look forward to going there. That will be special to be in the company of Sr. Consilio.

It is hard to believe that my Mam’s first Anniversary is in a few weeks, it has been hard for me, I don’t seem to be able to come to terms with her passing, I never thought it would be so hard and I miss her so much.( R.I.P) We were so close and she confided in me about everything. We would talk five and six times a day, every day. I miss those phone calls and the chats.

I know that we all have lost loved ones sometime in our lives, and what an empty place that can leave. Time is a great healer, and that just what it takes, time.

I am only doing a few concerts this year to finish off my 50th Anniversary year. That is all I am able to do for health reasons.

I will keep you up to date with any news I have.

Take care

Love always
