Where are they now?

A thread to query the current status of persons who reached minor celebrity or notoriety in Ireland/Oireland.

Paddy Casey: Received a fair bit of airtime for his pretty bland music from Today FM for a couple of months in the mid 2000s before disappearing from public consciousness as rapidly as he appeared. What is the bould Paddy at these days?


A right bollox apparently. I was told by a musician that he often took deposits for private gigs and went on the piss instead of turning up to them.


Can only assume he’s in the same post-Celtic Tiger retreat as Gavin Lambe Murphy.

My mate shagged his bird behind his back. Maybe if he found out, he could have got another album out of it.

Never heard of him at all

He was hardly on the radar for 18 months. Fell off the map very quickly.

Darragh Lyons, TV3’s answer to Uaneen Fitzsimons circa April/May 2000.

He had undoubtedly studied the facial mannerisms and general demeanour of MTV’s Toby Amies intensely.

From my poor recollection of him he seemed to be very young but tried to sing like an old fella who had smoked 40 players a day.
