All welcome to a jam packed weekend!
The Westlodge Hotel is delighted to announce the line-up for Derek Ryan Weekend of music and dancing for 2018!
Join Adrian Ryan, Ciarán Rosney, Patrick O’Sullivan, Louise Morrissey, and of course the sensational Derek Ryan for a weekend of pure fun.
The roll call of success for this multi-talented Irish man is long and much deserved – with two Irish Number One albums, sell-out shows at home and abroad, and fistfuls of music awards to his name.
It’s been a long road for the Garryhill, County Carlow born artist. He first developed his life long love for music when his parents bought a drum kit one Christmas for their four-year-old son!
Tunes from his mum’s favourite country music radio shows engrained themselves deeply in Derek’s heart. Songs by favourites including Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and George Strait.
It was pop which first drew a blond haired, fresh faced 17-year-old teenage Derek into the music business. He followed in the chart busting footsteps of Irish boybands, Boyzone and Westlife – as part of new Celtic teen pop phenomenon, D-Side in 2001. Managed by Kim Glover – the same woman responsible for Dublin born UK chart toppers, B*Witched and TV superstars, Ant & Dec’s singing years – Derek enjoyed three British Top Ten hits with D-Side.
Weekend packages with full access to all dances available.
