“An unCorked bottle of delight overflowing with good spirits, effervescent vocals and brimfull of good bouzouki and guitar playing.”
“You could cut crubeens with his accent: he is as important to his own city as The Bells of Shandon; he is a singer whose musical enthusiasms embrace everything from Irving Berlin to The Boys of Fairhill.”
—John Boland, Evening Press. (1982)
