Born in Dublin in 1941, I was very late starter into music; only getting involved in the mid 1980's when taking over a small recording studio set up by my son Ciaran. I gradually learned to play keyboards (badly) and started writing a few songs. Working with some local session musicians and singers, I began recording various County albums. My keyboard playing improved and I recorded six 'Mystical Ireland' albums, each of which went gold or platinum in Ireland and sold extensively in Europe. I had a surprising success with 'Scoring in the USA' which peaked at No 2 in the Irish album charts in June 1994. International success followed with my Dagda albums in USA, Europe and Asia. Following a heart attack and retirement, I'm now picking up where I left off in 1990 with recording of 'County Songs'.
