It's almost 20 years since I gave up writing songs. I didn't see much point writing more just to have them sit there unused, unloved and unsung. In the past, I did have songs recorded by Joe Dolan, Foster and Allen, Sonny Knowles, Paddy Cole, Rob Strong, Tom Donovan and many more. That was from another era.

Over the years I wrote in excess of 100 songs in a diverse variety of styles. The selection included here is in alphabetical order. The quickest way to flick through them is to click the  Next  button on each song page.
