When shall we three meet again !  

Huge thanks to Paddy McCarthy and his publication the Irish Examiner USA for a brilliant mention of my album Drift and for his very kind words on his Out and About page of the newspaper.

I met with Paddy and Michelle O'Mahony last weekend in Cork and had a great chat /meeting. Paddy who hails from Cork but made his life in New York has an amazing background and history and Michelle has many strings to her bow ,among them running her media company. Her website is  www.omhistorycounsultant.ie  .

Goodbye to this Troubled Year  

Hi everyone,well ,what a year 2020 turned out to be! It was just one of those huge years where nothing is the same afterwards.I hope you all managed to stay safe and well and continue to do so.We're almost there in terms of beginning to see a way through this nightmare as vaccines are on the horizon and please everyone,please continue to practice safe distancing,wearing a mask etc. 

Lets hope 2021 will bring some semblance of normality back.In terms of my own work the studio has been closed most of the year…

HELLO  all !!....I'm delighted to announce the arrival of my new album DRIFT. I'm exceptionally proud of this collection of songs and all of the songs have a deep personal connection in that they are written about or inspired by the people and places that mean so much to me in my life. I hope that the songs will resonate strongly with you also.

The album is very uplifting and life affirming and it wouldn't have been possible without the incredible skill and talent of all the players who appear on it.

A new clip from Fred Rea containing extracts of Under Any Old Gum Tree the play about Martin O'Meara-the play is written and directed by Noel O'Neill with Kieran Garvey as Martin. The play looks very compelling.
