I am not sure if Declan has shared his birthday with fans. It is up to each individual to decide what to share with fans, Sharon has always left it that way.

Simply Amazing

All I can say is WOW...I am a fairly new fan. When my dad passed away just awhile back I was given his music and fell in love with Celtic Thunder. I have yet to see a live show but am going to see you guys on October 3rd in Roanoke VA even though I missed out on meet and greet passes lol. I was lucky to see Ryan and Neil at a PBS event and show after. They were wonderful. A friend of mine pulled up a video of Raggle Taggle Gypsy since I hadn't ever seen you all perform and OMG Declan you are the most amazing drummer I have ever seen and heard. I loved the faces you made during the "competition" like part. I can't wait for October, I pray I have good seats so I can see you. Keep up the amazing job, you're the best!

*Hugs*

Hey Declan!

It was great meeting you on Friday evening after Storm; you were just a joy to chat with. Even if you didn't remember Kingston, but I can hardly blame you for that. After all, it was a small venue and not very full. *shrug*

Anyway, I hope to see you guys back here in the summer. I intend to make Kingston a much more memorable venue next time. ;P

Good luck with the rest of the tour and enjoy your time at home!

You have so much fun playing it makes one smile! You make great music with the drums. Hope to see you play again next time you guys are in New York.

Re: DECLAN O'DONOGHUE- Tour drummer

Hi Declan!

Just wanted to drop by and let you know that with all the excitement about Take Me Home being released in 5 days, you were not forgotten. I cannot wait to go back and watch you on the dvd and see exactly how much I missed when I saw the show live back in March. You are an extrememly talented individual and a pleasure to watch. Here's hoping you're having a wonderful summer and that we get the opportunity to see and hear you again this fall!

Slan!

Re: DECLAN O'DONOGHUE- Tour drummer

Declan,

Just wanted to tell you what a pleasure it was to meet you in West Virginia! Laughing out loud The show was outstanding, as usual! It's always fascinating to watch you play...most especially considering I can barely tap my steering wheel in time to the music I'm listening to and press the gas pedal. I hope that you're enjoying the spring tour and end it happy and healthy. See you at Foxwoods!

All the Best,

Lindsey

Re: DECLAN O'DONOGHUE- Tour drummer

Whoa Declan- I took 2 of my sons(17 & 24) to the Buffalo show and you were so much fun to watch esp in Raggle Taggle- they got a kick out of you as much as I did. You are having fun and it shows- thanks !

Re: DECLAN O'DONOGHUE- Tour drummer

Hi Declan,

I have to say I agree with each and every one of these posts. You are quiet the drummer. I was at 3 shows and each one I enjoyed your performance during Raggle Taggle Gypsy more and more! Keep up the good work and I'll see you again next year, even if I have to travel.

A note to Declan

I truly love EVERY member of Celtic Thunder. And yes I often get silly and I watch and listen the whole entire day. (I think I have all the cd's and dvd's)......... but Declan, when I listen to your 'beat',,, and I see your 'artistic visuals' while playing, I'm in total amaizment! I have enjoyed MANY bands,,, but I honestly have to say you are theeee best drummer ANYwhere! Thanks for the awesome music!

Susie from Central NY

Wow, I wish Declan would come on here much more often. I met him back in April at one of the shows and he was so great. We talked for awhile and he was just really awesome. It was cool though because naturally everyone else is swooning over the lads, so I had Declan all to myself. It was really cool getting to talk to him one-on-one. Hes a really great guy.
