1. When did you think about music as a career and what were your first steps into it?
One night in my late teens I sang with a family band called the Murrays at the local hotel in Dungloe. I can remember watching the people happily dancing and singing along with me. It was at this moment I thought if I could spend my life doing this I would be very fulfilled. After school, I went to college in Galway but only stayed three months before giving the music a go, at first travelling with my sister Margo’s band. I made my first record on February 9 1983.

Any time I see Loretta Lynn – she is my favourite singer of all time. Cliff Richard’s Hit List Live show was just fantastic and Celine Dion at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

Loretta Lynn would have to be out front, Chet Atkins on guitar, Floyd Cramer on piano, Ringo Starr on drums The Jordanaires doing backing vocals.
