I spent a wonderful day recently walking through the area in Dublin where I grew up and began to sing in what was to turn out as a lifetime singing career.
My interviewer on the day was the wonderful Mary Kennedy. So easy to talk to and her personality is a natural for her chosen profession.
We started at the Good Counsel School then on to the Community Hall where I started to sing at age of 12. I had been singing before then starting around 10 but this was in my area in a brand new Community Hall and a capacity Monday night audience each week.
