Mick Hanly is
one of Ireland's finest singer/songwriters and is best known for his song 'Past the Point of Rescue' made famous by
Hal Ketchum in the USA and Mary Black in Ireland. Mick has been singing and writing since the 1970's, which included a time
as lead singer with "Moving Hearts".
Ireland has produced a fair share of accomplished
songwriters but only a handful can match Mick Hanly when it comes to pure songwriting craft. Though often cast in a country music
mould, his work incorporates a powerful cogency of expression and emotion which can move - sometimes even startle.
