About Jimmy MacCarthy

One of Ireland’s foremost songwriters Jimmy MacCarthy returns to performing with a new Greatest Hits Irish tour this Autumn.

Having had his songs recorded by major Irish artists including Christy Moore, Mary Black, Mary Coughlan, Maura O’Connell, and Westlife, Jimmy has also released four solo albums of his own. On this “Greatest Hits” tour will pay homage to old favourites such as ‘Neidin’ while introducing more recent work such as ‘Andalucian Gray’ and ‘Children of Mile’.

A native of Macroom Co. Cork Jimmy MacCarthy was  singing in pubs and busking from an early age. His first single ‘Miles of Eyes’ was released in 1981 and from there he went on to write some of the most famous songs in the Irish folk and contemporary repertoire such as ‘Ride On’, ’No Frontiers’ ,’Katie’, ‘The Bright Blue Rose’, ‘The Contender’, ’Mystic Lipstick,’ ‘Missing you’ and many more.
