I was born in Dublin in 1941. Went to Francis Street CBS, Clogher Road Technical School and studied marine engineering at Crawford Technical Institute in Cork.
After 20 years designing and overseeing engineering services projects, a change in circumstances brought me into record production. Since then, I have written over 100 songs plus many instrumental musical pieces; recorded 80 albums (5 platinum, 4 gold and 2 silver); had a No.2 album in the Irish charts and a top 10 Christmas song; written a successful series of Irish legend books for children and produced a top selling language learning series.
My songs have been recorded by Joe Dolan, Sonny Knowles, Foster and Allen, Rob Strong, Tom Donovan and many others. My albums have sold in 15 countries around the world. One collection of albums spent over 100 weeks in the USA New Age radio charts and provided the trailer sound track for an Oscar winning film.
(June 2015) I'm now retired and enjoying good health, the craic and a bit of cycling around Youghal in County Cork.
