Movie Reviews

Splendid Performance
Ray McConnell | Saginaw, MI United States | 11/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this DVD during the intermission of Ronan's recent performance in Saginaw, and I highly recommend it to all who enjoy Ronan and his beautiful, uplifting music. I especially enjoyed his versions of "Danny Boy" and "Both Sides Now." This show in Dublin was obviously a triumph for Ronan, and I was moved at the dedication of various songs to each member of his family. His family has endured much more than most, and he has the courage and humility to talk about their struggles onstage and in his autobiography, which I happen to be reading now and would also rate five stars. A cousin invited me to go to Ronan's motivational talk in Midland, MI, in June. All I knew about him at the time was that he was Irish, and he sung at the Yankee games and Reagan's funeral. I bought his new CD and enjoyed the talk, but I really wished to see him sing an entire performance. I got my wish last month in Saginaw. Now I have all his CD's, his DVD, his autobiography, and his new book of sheet music. I gave that to my daughter, as she plays the piano. My ancestry is 100% Irish, and Ronan's story really brings Ireland home to me in a special way. On the DVD there is a special behind the scenes look at Ronan that features his horse farm in beautiful Kilkenny. I hope that many folks will purchase this DVD as a fine introduction to a great man with a singing voice straight from heaven."

"What a remarkable life Ronan Tynan has had. He not only has overcome his disabilities but uses them to inspire his audience. He has a personality and voice that is absolutely wonderful. You are spellbound as he entertains his audience. I know his spirit has inspired many to overcome. May he never stop bringing us those wonderful Irish tunes, especially when he sings I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen". You really think you are on the shores of Ireland as you listen to him."
DVD makes you feel you are in the audience

"As an avid Ronan Tynan fan, I was thrilled to view the DVD of his performance in Dublin. Dubbed the Impossible Dream, this piece showcases Tynan's incomparable talent as well as his inviting personality. When he performs, he is really engaged with the audience. The London Gospel Choir was fantastic and a wonderful combination performing with Ronan Tynan. Tynan quite obviously had a warm bond with the choir. This DVD is a must have."
