Meet The Irish

Ronan Tynan is recognized for his unique singing talent in Ireland and abroad. His first album, My Life belongs To You, was released in August 1998. It went straight to the top of the charts to number five and was recently certified gold. He also happens to be a medical doctor. A man of many talents, Ronan was the subject of a recent ABC news 20/20 segment, as well as an Irish documentary entitled Dr. Courageous.

At age 21, Ronan had both legs amputated below the knee due to a condition in his ankles. Twelve brief months later, he went on to become a great disabled athlete, winning gold metals in international track and field events, and setting 14 world records in the process. In 1994, he rose to stardom after winning the BBC talent competition, "Go For It." In 1996, he won the prestigious "Marmande" singing competition in France and was a finalist in the international Pavarotti competition.

Ronan is a member of The Irish Tenors, along with Anthony Kearns and John McDermott. This Irish trio has brought the rich customers of Irish songs into the household of millions. Their music is a passionate commemoration of Ireland’s people, it’s spirit, and it’s very soul.
