    Hi Neil…. Just want to say how lovely it was to meet you when you were here in Australia. Thank you so much for taking the time to pose for photos and chat with us after the Tamworth show. You guys were so friendly and polite, I feel very privileged to have met you all.

    Now to pose my question to you once again, you said you hadn’t tried it yet but to ask you again later in the tour but I never got the chance. So did you finally get the courage to try that Kangaroo Steak after all? :)

    Hope you’re getting that well deserved rest now that you’re home again.

    Take care,
    Dianne

    Suggestion for the website – I know I’m not alone when i say we would really love the lyrics to your songs posted on here somewhere!

    I know a great way to help Neil get over his jet lag, let’s get him nominated for the 2013 Irish Music Awards! The Thunderheads helped bring the award home to Ryan and George, it’s time that Neil is recognized as the amazing artist that he is! Go here to nominate him! We can do this! http://www.irishmusicassociation.com/irishmusicawards/nominations.php

    Oh My Stars!! Just heard you sing “Hallelujah” on SCETV and it was beyond beautiful! Can you get any more impressive?

    Thanks for a great, great time at Bopper’s Bar in Charlotte on March 7. It was great music and a lot of fun. I wish we could have more nights like that…

    Hello Neil,

    It was a PLEASURE meeting you yesterday in Atlanta at the meet and greet, as well as the gig at Mac McGee’s. I honestly felt like a 16 year old girl going on her first date. LOL You guys were absolutely amazing and YOU MADE MY NIGHT! You are so full of charm and talent, I can see why you have so many admirers. :) Of course I am including myself in that category.

    Thank you so much for singing Truador, one of my all time favorites of yours. Sadie Jones was a treat to see performed acoustically and of course Past the point of Rescue (thats how I felt – Lol) was incredible. You and Ryan ROCKED together and individually. If you couldn’t tell I loved everything about last night except that I acted like a dork… but I am who I am. :) lol

    I hate that I missed California Dreamin and Rock N Roll Kids!! :(

    You are amazing! Hope you liked the Pale blue Jak M & M’s. as well as the other goodies. :)

    Keep Shining,

    Rhonda

    P.s. It’s hard to believe that I can write and spell so well since I was unable to form a complete sentence around you, huh? lol

    Hope everything is going well for you! Sounds like Australia was good to you guys.

    I wanted to drop in and say hi. I hope you have a blast doing the promo tours on the East coast this year. I loved the video of you and Ryan.

    Looking forward to meeting you at the meet and mingle this year. :)

    Keep Shining,

    I was also just looking at the gallery of photos and was wondering if you have any pictures from fall tour 2011.

    Take care, keep writing.

    I’m glad you finally got to your post box I sure hope you get my card along with the letter and the picture my brother took that night at Fox Theater in Detroit. It really was a great night. I’m a social network junkie so I’m always sending replies and posting comments to all your tweets. Sure hope you feel great it sucks being sick. Yesterday I went to a friend’s house for a party and when I came home all I did was sneeze continuously. I’d not been around a cat in a long time so my cat allergies came back to bit me in the nose. I hate being sick it just sucks all the life out of you but when you feel better you could climb a mountain or at least bike one. Hope your post box contains lots of lovely surprises. You really are one great guy.

    WOW!, perhaps I will be WAY behind everyone else when I say this, but, I was listening to the radio earlier this morning and I heard something I was not expecting to hear (Some of you may already know what I’m going to say) but “Let ‘em In” is a Paul McCartney tune, BIG news to me, I’m not a McCartney fan so I didn’t expect to be privy to this info, HAHA I Love Learning about things like this.

    Have a great day all & weekend too :D

    My Birthday Wish For You
    By Andrea Carter

    There are gifts come wrapped in ribbons
    That shine and catch the eye
    But in time they may fade
    Wither, break or die
    But a wish last forever
    Never going out of style
    So I give my wish to you
    Unwrap it with your smile

    May your heart be filled with gladness
    Every day of the year
    May you never know sadness
    Or Ever shed a tear
    May ever challenge be easy
    To face and and overcome
    May every storm be gentle
    And make way for the shining sun

    May the sound of heartfelt laughter
    Always ring in your ear
    And friendships just grow stronger
    With each passing year
    May your work be your passion
    Your accomplishments be praised
    May your income be abundant
    And fullfillment fill your days

    May you know your true Self
    And always recognize
    The treasure that you are
    The gifts you hold inside
    At the end of each day
    As you watch the setting sun
    May you get a sense of pride
    At all you have done

    And so this is my birthday wish
    It’s all the best for you
    Now blow the candles in one breath
    And may all your dreams come true

    Happy Birthday Neil!

    Neil,
    Just wanted to tell you again how much I’m enjoying “Pale Blue Jak”. I have a long commute to and from work…..up to one and a half hours each way….and now I’m sorry when it ends! I listen to your music endlessly…..and even when I can’t it’s playing in my head. I’m adding new speakers to my work computer just so I can listen at my desk………I’m hopelessly addicted and loving it. Thanks for taking the time to connect with the fans and post new videos for us. You totally rock! Love you Neil!

    Hello Neil,

    So you asked us, your fans, what was our favorite song (s) on your album Faces. I didn’t want to rush into having a favorite just for the sake of having one, so I decided to listen to the whole album for a week or so.

    I found myself wanting to listen to My parade (love it…. makes me want to get up and move :) ), Paperboy, Candlestick and A life I Once Had over and over again, so I would have to say these 4 are my favs!

    The album is great and is nothing like I have ever heard before. Which is a good thing! Great job! Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

    Keep Shining!

    I’m absolutely loving “Faces”. You asked for favorite tracks… I just can’t decide. My 10 year old’s fave is Grenade, though. I love the sound and feel of your rendition of Grenade, but I think I’m enjoying the original stuff more.

    • #35 written by Kay

    Can’t believe it’s been a month since I posted. But not to worry I keep up with your happenings on Twitter.
    I wanted to tell you that your new album is beyond fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about it. Keep up the great work. I think I remember telling you a year ago that John deserved a raise…..What do you think now!! I’ll be seeing you in Nov. sooooo excited.

    First and Foremost, the concert in Atlanta this past Saturday was everything I had hoped for! It was an amazing show. I have seen 4 shows live and I promise that the CT concerts are getting better and better and better. Each and everyone of the CT guys are true entertainers and very fun to watch!

    Neil, in one of your older post you had mentioned concerns about losing your identity becoming one of the front guys for CT. After seeing your perform with such grace and style on Saturday I believe you know exactly who you are and what you are capable of!!!!! With your hypnotic appeal, you had complete control of the audience during your solo performances. The crowd LOVED YOU! :)

    With your talent(s) and confidence there is no doubt that you are and always will be a very respected musician. You are the master of your own fate! Keep believing and keep shining!

    Also, thank you so much for taking a picture with me. I become rather bashful upon seeing you in person… go figure, so I didnt introduce myself. I am a dork. LOL Maybe next year.

    One more time, GREAT JOB IN ATLANTA… Well done!

    Hi Neil!!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE “Faces”!!! Yet another amazing success from my beloved Guitar God! While I guess it is technically a pop album, the music is anything but, as your songwriting talents are as diverse as the many instruments you play! Each song has a completely unique vibe, as you expresse your innermost thoughts and feelings in song.

    To say I am proud of you would be an understatement. I am just thrilled at this latest accomplishment in what is surely just the beginning of many more albums to come!

    Keep up the great work! You will always have a fan in me!

    Regards to John.

    Your Philly girl,
    Michelle xx

    Neil, the shows in Charlotte and Cherokee, NC were fantastic! I loved every minute, but I think my favorite minute was when you picked up the guitar the first time. Neil with a guitar… life is good.

    Don’t get me wrong. I’m *loving* seeing you out front and hearing that voice of yours. Past the Point of Rescue has now become my favorite song. Hope we get to hear it on a CD.

    It’s great that you are having so much fun on tour!! Like everyone, I’m anxiously waiting to hear that your CD is ready for purchase!! What about a calendar?! I know your supporters would love it!! As one of your older supporters, your music brings a smile to my heart and reminds me that there IS good in this world. To have your genuine smile and twinkling eyes each month would be a wonderful reminder, not that I don’t have your music reminding me every day!!

    Safe travels! I can’t wait to see you in Seattle and Dallas!!

    A friend just got me the CT calendar for one simple reason: “MAY”. She was absolutely right. That is the best picture of you that I have ever seen (with one exception – a photo my gran took of you a few years ago…you remember).

    It would make a delightful album cover…hint hint.

    Neil, so looking forward to the new cd coming out. I can’t believe you got it done in the amount of time you did. I have kids a couple of years older than you and 3 grandchildren, but love your music and have since the 1st yr I saw you in Kansas City with CT. Love to meet you and show you around Kansas City when you’re here, but having traveled with a band of my own for many years, (in my youth) I know that sometimes you have time, sometimes you don’t. So excited you are coming back Oct. 18th. Although I’m usually saving to go and visit my daughter and granddaughters in Germany, where my daughter is an Army Combat Medic, I splurged to buy tickets for myself and 2 friends who have never seen you. Sec 103 Row 9. (I’ll be sportin’ a Neil Byrne shirt for sure!) Excited to be up closer this time! Keep writing your music and we’ll keep listening. You’re an awesome lad for sure and I think you’re quite special indeed! You and that Dec! LOL God bless and safe travels!

    I just want to wish you luck on the tour this fall. I hope you have a great time .
    I watched all the lads on QVC and you were all great. It makes me even more excited for my show to come.
    It has been sad to see Paul, Phil, and Damo leave, but we have Ryan back now. And I’m excited for the new group of lads.

    Be safe and have an AWESOME tour, I know I will.
    Counting down the days until your Cd is available.

    Hey Sunshine,
    I think I have a favorite song already and I haven’t even heard the album yet. “Candlestick” is so ‘haunting’ (hehe sorry I couldn’t resist) and so off-the-wall it’s like something I’d have written myself.
    Can’t wait to hear the album in its entirety. It’s sure to be wizard!

    Hey Sunshine,
    First the rhetorical question: Do either you or your charming manager (Hi John!) realize how many hard copies you could sell if you would re-release Hipple Street? Just think about it – you have a brand new fan base in the states that is ready to eat up absolutely ANYTHING you release (Remember gargling in the bath? I’d even buy that!)
    Now to the legitimate question: Would it be practical (or even possible) to re-release the Hipple Street CDs for your new fans who didn’t know you in Ireland when Hipple Street was a reality?

    By the way, hearty congratulations on finishing the album. I can’t wait to hear it. I’ll be first in line! Time for that mini-break me thinks.

    Hi Neil,
    I just viewed your chat video – It is so cool!! Thanks so much for doin’ it! You are way too cool and cute. With all this techie stuff I feel like you’ve been a friend of our family forever but unfortunately unlike alot of your other fans, we haven’t met you yet. We are seeing you twice this Dec in Chicago and Bloomington. I’d tell you we’d be the Mom, 2 daughters (8 and 5 yr olds) and the Dad with the biggest smile on our faces but I’m sure you get that all the time.
    I keep wanting to make a CD to send you of my daughters ‘cuz I know you’d get a kick out of them and their “Let’s play Celtic Thunder!” show.
    Thanks for always keeping us in your thoughts! You are one VERY talented guy! Please don’t ever give it up!

    We love you!!

    Mr Neil loved the chat but you said something that made me think of a commercial this lady was asking these 2 sharks (with a bit of blood on their lips ) which person tasted better both sharks agreed the boy did the lady said that is because he just eat a SNICKERS with peanut butter filling warning do not eat one when near the water or on the boat with Keith (he may push you over after he gives you a snickers) and the fish would think you would make a good snack

    Congratulations on moving up within CT, but I do agree don’t get to far from your guitar. I had the privilege of meeting you in LA on the lasttour. I was so taken with what a nice man you are, and I loved the first few tracks you had done my fav was Sadie Jones and I yes they should incorporate that into the show.
    Alas I am still trying to wrap my thoughts around Ryan’s leaving, I only hope that it is just for a little while. I t is so amazing to see you all perform as a group and yet each and every one of you is so very talented in your own right
    its what makes CT unique all of you including Paul and Ryan just shine individually and together can’t wait to see you all in Oct.

    I am so glad that you are now the 5th soloist for CT. You have worked hard and deserve it.
    I just hope that ( like everybody else ) you are not removed completly from your guitar. You are such a great player, I love to watch you play. Not only your guitar but the drums and mandolin also. You are very gifted.

    Keep up the great work.
    Hope to see you this fall in Atlanta.

    Love and Hugs,

    WOOOO!!!!!!

    I am so excited for this, I am so glad you are going to get this spot, If you ask me you should have gotten it when Paul left, but that’s for another day. I am saddened that we are losing another member within 1 year of the other, but I think on the bright side… WE GET MORE NEIL!!! :D :D ;)

    I feel like the others, I hope that you don’t have to lay the guitar down completely, I hope that you do get a chance to play more than Keith does now.

    But what about the other things, ie your drum part in “Heartland” & etc. now you will be ‘on stage’ with the other guys, and probably not able to play your drums. ohh, I hope this is really a good thing, I think of it like this though, we get more Neil and no new understudy!

    KEEP IT UP!!
    Love Kristin

    And… as I am being so nauseatingly complimentary to your music today :) let me add that you harmonize beautifully. I don’t know many people who realize how much backing vocals contribute to a song. Listening to earlier Celtic Thunder CDs, as well as a surprisingly pleasant delight of a find at a used music shop in Cork City yesterday, tells me your voice blends spectacularly with anyone’s music. Good BVs make the song for me most of the time and yours…well…they’re just the best I’ve heard. Alright, sycophantic tirade over.

    I know…I know always onto bigger and better things. But regardless of that philosophy and how much I love your solo stuff, I can’t help but still miss Hipple Street. I thought after you released Sensitive Souls I would be content to leave HS on a back burner to be played now and again but that hasn’t been the case. HS is fun and energetic and in a totally different league from SS. No one could ever accuse you of having a specific style that defines you as a musician. I like that about you allot. I’ve said it before…you are talented enough and versatile enough to play any musical genre successfully. I’m sure your next solo effort will prove that even more.

    My new kilt arrived in the mail
    So I donned it and walked a park trail.
    So happy that day, but to my dismay
    A hand stand can land you in jail.

      I hope he has a great time with Paul though, and I hope that Paul doesn’t burn too much popcorn on him. lol

    Hi Neil,

    Inquiring minds would like to know if you are going to be doing the PBS promo tours with the guys? It seems just about all the others guys have posted something about the promo tour and we even know exactly where Keith will be… but, we haven’t heard anything from you in reference to this.

    America loves you! Any bit of info would be lovely. :)

    I just received Heritage today. You guys are awesome. I loved “Noreen”, but I have to admit there was a tear or two falling by the end of the song.

    I can’t wait for your CD this summer! Hoping to get the EP soon.

    Hi Neil,
    I just received my Heritage DVD. Watching you
    sing “Noreen” was very emotional. Alot of songs are just words until the person singing it puts his heart and soul into it. You put everything you had into the song and it showed. I don’t think anyone else could sing it any better.
    Thanks for all you do! xoxo Joyce :)

    Finally! “A Matter Of Time”: acoustic and in its entirety! I’ve been waiting a long time for that. You know what I thought of it when I first heard it. I think “gushing” was the word, right? Well…it’s even better than I imagined it. Put it on a country album immediately ;)
    Thanks for finally sharing it. It’s one of your best – craicin, incredible, fantastic, MUNYA, delig…oops, there I go again.
    I love it!!!!!!!!

    Neil,

    Wanted to let you know that as of November 2010, at the Atlanta show you made yet another life long fan. My niece and I had second row ( we were holding a sign that said, Girls Dig Men In Kilts) you were one of the first on stage, your drums were right in front of us. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of you. I think I missed half the show…. lol

    I read somewhere, I believe on CT website that the Bee Gee’s, among many other artist have had some influence on you musically . I love the Bee Gees and would LOVE to hear you sing something/anything by them. I don’t know how you pick the music that you choose to put on here, but You have the voice that would ROCK any Bee Gees song. Would love to hear the song “Words”. :)

    Take care and Keep on Shining!

    Hi Neil,
    “My Girl”… weeeellllll, it’s nice but not your best, sorry. Or let’s say more specifically it’s not one of MY favorite songs.
    What’s this “Postman Pat” you are singing in the background? I think I like it since it seems to stay in my head and I keep humming it.
    But I guess no matter what you sing, I like it :)
    Love,
    your fellow cruiser Jutta

  • #168 written by Aisling O'Shaughnessy
    about 6 years ago

    Hey Sunshine,
    I’ll be honest with you – “My Girl” has never been my favorite song, not by the Temptations nor by you. It’s not a bad rendition, just not your best. I’m laughing here though because even as I write these words I find the song is still going round and round in my head. I catch myself singing it throughout the day. Ironically enough, I guess that is a sign of a good song nonetheless so you must have done something right with it. ; )
    Regardless, you still have a lot to answer for. Not only do you have “My Girl” running through my head like a rabid Chihuahua but you also have me singing a song that I haven’t sung for DECADES! People are questioning my sanity more than normal what with “Postman Pat” rambling through their homes.
    Despite it all, thanks. You’ve brought back some fun memories.

    There is so much a man can tell you, So much he can say. You remain, My power, my pleasure, my pain……..
    I can only image what you could do with this song.

You have such a great voice. Plus, the way you carry yourself when you’re singing on stage tells a lot. You can tell that you enjoy what you do. I hope you keep doing it too. Celtic Thunder wouldn’t be the same without you!! I hope to hear more of your awesome songs and stuff in the near future. Keep it up. You’re awesome. (:

    Neil,
    Loved the Rochester & Binghamton shows. Really a downer not to have you doing an equal time front and center. Keep hoping and waiting. I loved the fact that you did Ireland’s Call with the rest of the guys. I was really puzzled when you left the stage and the guitar tech stepped in for you. But loved seeing you come out for Ireland’s Call. So busy watching you, that I totally missed Paul raising his kilt for the last time. Did catch Keith raising yours. I am so glad for all of you getting home to family and friends for the holiday, but so disappointed that it is another 9 months for the next show.
    Hope our PBS station has you guys come this year, they don’t do pledge breaks. Just ask for money at the beginning and end of the show. May have to see about going out of area to see you guys in the spring
    Brought a present for you to Rochester & Binghamton. No luck getting it to you, so mailing it out in the morning.
    Sure do hope you get more front and center time. Wrote that to Sharon this afternoon, and a couple people tweeted that they agreed.
    Have a good rest, do your tour in Ireland, but tell us all about it.

    Hey Sunshine,
    I’m sure you’ll be very happy to take off the traveling boots, get home to family and friends and lead a normal life for awhile. It’s been a long tour and some hard slog but hopefully it’s had its rewards for you as well. Just think, no more room service and eating out. Soon you’ll be back to beans on toast, burnt fish and chips and the odd edible curry. Hmmm…maybe a longer tour doesn’t sound so bad after all, huh? :)

    Hi Neil,
    Didn’t know where to post these questions for your next Q&A:
    Why didn’t you have Naturally in Harmony and A Matter of Time in you latest EP? Would you consider in adding it to your next one?
    In you future projects, are you considering doing an instrumental EP?
    Lastly, not part of the Q&A, just a suggestions on the merchendise, would you consider V-neck for the women T-shirts?
    I hope you lads are all doing well in the tour. Love the pictures from all the fans.
    God Bless you and be safe.

    Hi Neil,
    I hope you are doing well in the tour. I enjoy reading Damian, Keith and Ryan’s twitter messages. Just received this week the poster and I can’t wait to get the CD. Also, viewed the Sadie Jones and I video….LOVE IT!

    BTW, love your pictures in the gallery. Take Care….:-)

  • #246 written by Meg Paolini

    well- my favorite song from the EP- very hard to choose! I love the bluesy sound of Sadie Jones- almost jazz- like in parts and thanks to the snippets you have given us, I see you in those clothes on the bike. Raoul and Her Ladyship- is so dreamy and I love the harmony- and the percussion is stiking. Truador- love the title- and the romanticism of the melody and words. I see a special close night between a couple- circling each other till they decide to commit to love each other. Cherish is covered so well by you- it would be lovely to have a newlywed couple use as their first dance at their wedding. The intensity just builds so perfectly.
    So there you have it- my favorites! lol

    Hey, Neil! Wonderful site! The items in the store are amazing! I like that you have put a lot of “organic” stuffs :) Here is my suggestion: Bottons! I love bottons and it’s a good way to spread your name and talk about your music with any stranger that will stop me in the street and question me “Wow!! What’s this botton means?” And I’ll say “Ahá! It’s from Neil!!!” I’m happy! Anyways… that’s it! Keep on with your amazing work!

    Hey Neil -
    I see a problem with the long sleeve jersey I want…ya can’t see the logo on the darker colors. I was hoping to get a dark blue one but what’s the point of buying a jersey with a logo on it if youse can’t see it? Are the pictures deceiving? Can you see the logo better in person? I’ll probably still buy one – just want to know what to expect.
    Thanks…Aisling xx

    Your new website is fantastic! I remember seeing you perform at Shea’s with Celtic Thunder 2 years ago and how entertaining you were especially on the drums. I should have known then that you would be up front singing with the other lads. You were so nice taking time with fans after the Bflo show this year. I’m hoping my boys get to meet you after the show in Erie. They love music and constantly put on drum performances for the family. Rock on!

    Neil, Love your website. It is really well done. Went shapping there this afternoon, I was suppose to be grading papers, but shoppping won. Bought all that will fit me. Thanks for thinking of those of us that need larger sizes. Did my 3 shows in 3 weeks, now have to wait till Rochester and Binghamton at the end of the tour. I still say the same thing I told you in Buffalo — the only thing wrong with It’s Entertainment is you do not get solos. I am really waiting till you get equal time front and center.
    Thank you again for being so sweet to me after Buffalo and Philadelphia. After a six hour ride, it really made me so much happier. Hopefully some time I can really get a chance to talk with you. Maybe M & M in Rochester.

    Neil, the site is wonderful, congrats! Was so glad that you put out the EP, have downloaded from itunes and looking forward to having the CD also.

    Cannot wait to see any new additions to the site and watch your popularity grow.

    Thanks for sharing the pics of you growing up, really adds to the story.

    Neil,
    You have obviously been a very busy man. Love the new website and I am a big fan of the acoustic version of Truador – always been my favorite.
    Love listening so Sensitive Souls too.
