Dr. Ronan Tynan is a talented man from my home area Johnstown, Kilkenny but he was born in Dublin. His family home is in Kilkenny something I take great pride in. He is a singer (tenor), doctor, former Paralympic (with disability) athlete & gold medal winner. Tynan is part of the group, The Irish Tenors (Anthony Kearns, Declan Kelly) a singing trio they tour twice a year, Christmas & St. Patrick’s Day. Tynan won both the John McCormack cup for Tenor Voice & the BBC talent show, Go For It. Tynan was born with phocomelia, birth defects in which the hands & feet are underdeveloped. (A side of effect of taking the drug thalidomide during pregnancy) Tynan had a twin brother who died at only a few months old.

Some of you might remember Tynan singing God Bless America at sporting events. The song God Bless America was written by Irvin Berlin. Berlin’s family fled Russia when he was a child. I think a lot of us right now are singing God Bless America.
Tynan has performed at many famous events & for several celebrities. He sang at former New York’s Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s wedding, Ronald Reagan’s funeral, George Bush’s 80th birthday, St. Patrick’s Day reception with President Bush and former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern & George Bush’s state funeral. He also sang at New York’s Archbishop Timothy Dolans installation Mass. Tynan a great Catholic has appeared a few times on EWTN. ( Catholic channel)
Tynan has an Autobiography titled, “Halfway Home” for any big readers.
I will leave you with this story. “A young boy and girl were enjoying a pleasant afternoon playing outside together. The boy showed the girl his collection of beautiful marbles. In turn, the girl showed the boy the candy that she had just gotten for her birthday. The boy proposed that the two of them switch–he would give her all of his marbles if she handed over all of her candy. The girl agreed, as she found the marbles to be beautiful. The boy handed over all of his marbles, but kept one–the most exquisite one of them. The girl kept her promise and gave the boy all of her candy. That night, the girl was happy with the exchange and peacefully went to sleep. The boy, however, couldn’t sleep, as he was up wondering if the girl had kept some of her candy, just like he did with the marble. The Moral: If you don’t give 100% in your relationships, you will always assume your partner isn’t giving 100% either. If you want your relationships to be built on trust, you have to be a participating factor in that. Honesty grows your character. By being honest in relationships, you’re holding your partner accountable to do the same. It allows you and your partner to continuously think about your choices.”
