Top Ten Best Irish Singers

The Top Ten

1 Danny O'Donoghue

Best singer

Danny o'Donoghue is really singing his heart out on stage. His voice is giving you shivers, you can feel that he's in that moment again, refeeling all the emotions. That's why you have to see the Script live - they're absolutely amazing live!

He is a great singer, every song he sings is filled with emotion. When you are at a Script gig he draws you in & makes the audience part of the gig. I love it when he wanders into the audience during the energy never dies.

Danny should be number one. His voice is unbelievable, so angelic and pure. He sounds even better love than he does on a recording and that just says it all. Danny O'Donoghue really is the best Irish singer ever
