Pat is the writer of several of Irelands most famous folk songs including THE SICK NOTE- WHY PADDYS NOT AT WORK TODAY, and THE REASON I LEFT MULLINGAR, which have been recorded by virtually every major Irish Folk artist worldwide.
The original versions of both these songs are featured on Pat's C.D. WORDS, recorded in Germany, where Pat now lives, and where he has become a popular concert performer.
The C.D. includes several other previously unreleased songs, and with just voice and guitar gives a good impression of Pat's singing style.
This was no ordinary one man and guitar concert, the packed
hall was with Pat all the way, with his mighty voice, and
sparkling stage presence, Pat Cooksey has won a legion of
