Tommy was born in Aclare Co. Sligo Ireland in 1971 and was the youngest of six children. He started singing while still at school while fronting his own local band a chance encounter with Phil Coulter at a charity function near his home lead to a big break onto the world stage where Tommy appeared as a guest singer on Phil's USA tour. This then lead to Tommy entering into the music business as a solo artist.
Shortly after securing a record deal everything looked set to flourish when a tragic car accident left the singer with a broken neck leaving his music career on-hold indefinitely. After many months of convalescents Tommy returned to the stage having to start over and is now regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career spanning the last 25 years.

On 30th March 2012, Tommy lost both of his parents and chose not to perform for several months. The encouragement and influence his parents had on his career inspired Tommy to write his autobiography and record the album "Begin" - a collection of songs chosen as a personal tribute to his beloved Mother and Father. This album, along with all of Tommy's albums, have provided strength and comfort to countless others with heavy hearts, as they journey through difficult times.
Tommy's versions of Danny Boy, Raglan Road and The Contender have earned him global recognition. He performs regularly in Australia where he has a multi-album deal with ABC and where he accompanied Elaine Paige on tour in November / December 2014.
