Outback Paddy


I migrated from my native Dublin City in 1986 with my wife Brenda (now deceased) and our 3 children, Cheryl Melanie and Aidan. Coming to Australia was to be the start a new and exciting life for me and my beautiful family. A marriage break up in December 1987 and a fatal car crash in August 1988 put an end to this. The overwhelming loss in 1988 was almost too much to bear but we learned to move on from this unforeseen tragedy and will always cherish the wonderful memories of a beautiful wife and a fantastic loving mother.
I had no idea of the vast distances that I would travel with my work as a visiting songwriter and motivational speaker in schools and communities throughout Western Australia in the 1990s and be totally mesmerised at the awesome beauty of my dear adopted country.

I fell in love with “Outback Australia” from the tourist town of Broome in Western Australia's Kimberley region to Far North Queensland and way down south to the Great Australian Bight. I soon had inspiration for songs coming out of my ears, this was how I started writing my country songs and bush ballads, traveling the great sunburnt land and capturing the beauty of the amazing outback through my eyes and from my heart as I visited remote communities bush towns, outback places, farming communities and tourist towns.

I created the name Outback Paddy, as I was thinking about a way to describe myself, a traveling minstrel, a funny little Irishman singing about my homeland and my new home in the land down under, I would introduce myself to people as Michael, but they would often say, yes Paddy, so the name Outback Paddy became a part of me, It is the name of my CD and my theme song and also my show, the "Outback Paddy Show".

Sit back and enjoy the journey through my website.
