Derek has performed throughout Ireland and Europe, and in the last two years has had four successful tours of the United States.

Stand Up And Fight
Derek has become synonymous with Munster and Irish Rugby in his hometown of Limerick City, and has had the honour of singing at many of their games in Thomond Park and Lansdowne Rd over the past four years. His version of 'STAND UP AND FIGHT', which he recorded with renowned composer/arranger Frank Mcnamara, has become a favourite of the Munster Rugby fans and was available for download from the official Munster website in the build up to the 2008 Heineken Cup Final, and to Derek's delight was played in the Millenium Stadium for all the fans to hear after Munster's win over Toulouse.
An Irish Tenor With A Difference
Derek is pushing the boundaries of what is expected from an Irish Tenor. "I am an Irish Tenor, but must importantly I am a singer. Sometimes I feel that there is a perception of what an Irish Tenor is and should be. What I'm trying to do is change that perception and really push the envelope of expectation. My aim is to build a career that will be unique and exciting, but above all entertaining".
