Welcome to Derek Ryan Music

Thanks for dropping in  – hope you all like the new Derek Ryan Music website!

Things are still going brilliantly on the road. Thank you to everyone who has been coming to see me at my gigs up and down the country, you all make such a great audience. I hope everyone is as excited about the new album release as I am! Country Soul has a little bit of everything, including some of my own original music and the summer hit “Wake Me Up”, so get your copy and have a listen!

As you may know, I’m now in the middle of my Concert Tour, which has been a huge success so far. After tickets went on release quite a few of the dates sold out, so the tour has been extended into 2014!  Don’t forget, you can buy a copy of the Live DVD Recording of one of my concerts – just in case you haven’t been able to make it to one. This will be released over the next couple of weeks, so watch out for details!

It’s great to see my music spreading among different people in different places – keep up the good work and sharing my music!  I have been all over the country lately doing dances and concerts, even have made a few trips across the water to my fans in Scotland and England – which is fantastic!

Don’t forget that up to the minute information is available on Facebook and Twitter. Please make sure you like and follow me for all the latest news, so you can keep up with me on my journey.

I hope to see you soon. Be sure to come and say hello if I’m playing at a venue near you. Check out the Tour Guide to find your nearest venue.

    For the attention of the Mr Derek Ryan

    Dear Sir/Mme,

    I am writing on behalf of my niece Clare McElroy.
    Clare, who has Downs’ Syndrome, is turning 18 on 6th of April.

    Clare lives with her parents near Smithboro, Co. Monaghan, is a very active member of the community, and will be swimming in the Special Olympics in Limerick in June.

    Clare has attended a number of Derek’s concerts and was thrilled to meet him recently at the Hillgrove in Monaghan.

    We are preparing a movie of photos and home videos of Clare’s life, so far, for her birthday party.
    The video will have birthday wishes from her friends and family dispersed throughout the production.

    Is there any possibility that a videoclip of Derek saying “happy birthday Clare” could be sent to me for this (lodrisc@tcd.ie) ?

    If not, to be able to read a card out from Derek and present Clare with the card after the movie would be fantastic.

    If Derek could sign a card, I would be tremendously grateful if it could be sent to:

    Miss Clare McElroy
    C/O Lorraine O’Driscoll
    27 Clonard Park
    Sandyford Road
    Dublin 16

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Best wishes,
    Lorraine (O’Driscoll)
