This memorial page was created by Joe McGuiggan
Joe was born in Mullingar in 1939, the youngest of eight children. He summed up his happy childhood "We didn't have much but we didn't want for much. We were happy where we were and happy with our lot." Music had always been a feature of the Dolan family, encouraged by their mother. His father died when he was 11 and his mother when he was 19. As teenagers, Joe and his brother Ben sang and played instruments, and before long were playing and winning talent contests. He started his official musical career in 1960 when he and Ben formed The Drifters showband.
I went to Joe's show and was thrilled to see him perform and meet him after the show. I had loved his songs before but after meeting him, loved the super, humble man that he was. I still listen to him almost every day. I will be lighting a candle for him on the 26th Dec. every year till I die. God Bless you Angel Joe.
Oh how i looked forward to going to all your shows, especially the dance hall era, what great times we had, you were one in a million, a true Gentleman and Friend, we had great chats, when i lived in London, we still met up, you never forgot, and you will never be forgotten, love you my friend, Rest In Peace xx
Happy 75th Birthday Joe, still miss going to your concerts, you were the best entertainer in showbusiness world and will never be forgotton. I play your CD's all the time.
In the late 60's early 70's I was dating a lovely Irish nurse, who introduced me to the great man in person. Joe was sitting in the corner of the bar and Mary new him from her days in Mullingar. I sat next to Joe with Mary by my side. I chatted too him for over ten/twelve minutes before he went on stage always the gentleman and such a gentle and shy man.After that meeting I became a big fan. Unfortunetly Mary and I parted, I always to this day what ever happened to my beautiful Collen from Mullingar, my first love.
Your always on my mind Joe. Rest in peace

Prima oara cand l-am ascultat pe Joe Dolan, era prin 1983, la Radio Romania, interpretand ''It's you, it's you, it's you'' si-mi spuneam ce minunata poate fi viata, daca exista asemenea melodii! ''More and more'' o am setata ca ton de apel la telefonul mobil! ''More Joe Dolan'' reprezinta playlist-ul creat de mine si semnat Pavel Rosu! De asemenea, am un nickname ''MoreJoeDolan'', la ''conQUIZtador.ro'', joc de cultura generala! Imi plac absolut toate piesele lui Joe Dolan, insa mai mult tin la cele doua amintite mai sus si la urmatoarele: ''Make me an island''; ''Good looking woman''; ''Bonjour Mademoiselle''; ''Deeper and deeper''; ''Danny boy''; ''Sometimes when we touch''; ''Make me act the fool''; ''Aching breaking heart''; ''Endless magic''; ''Only you''; ''Lady of the night''; ''Westmeath bachelor''; ''Teresa''; ''Come back home''; ''Sister Mary''; ''She doesn't live here anymore'' (Bagatelle hit); ''This is my life''; ''Dreaming''; ''Angel lover''; ''Once upon a time''; ''Pearl's a singer''; ''Goodbye, Venice, goodbye'' si ''Limerick''! Joe Dolan is The Voice of Ireland and The Voice of The World! Hy, E.T.! You find us here: Milky Way, Terra, Europe, Eire, Mullingar, Joe Dolan! One true love, Joe Dolan!

We were all so excited as we stood in the queue, to each Joe Show, to take our seats & to listen to our Joe's beautiful unique voice.O our heart's beat even faster with excitement , as our Joe came onto the stage, all dressed in white, with his beautiful sparkling eye's & beautiful smile full of warmth, deep from within & so captivating. He gave us his all at each show & it was his joy to give. Once his fans were happy our Joe was happy too. At the end of each show we yelled for "More & More" & looked forward to the next Joe Show. R.I.P., dear Joe, you were simply the very best & your beautiful music & songs will live on with us, forever & you dear Joe will live in our mind's & heart's forever. Love you alway's dear Joe. XXXXXX
I have so many beautiful memorie's of Joe, from having met him on the street's of his hometown,to having met him in his pub and had the chat and the laughter with him, to having went to so many of his great show's. These memorie's will live with me forever. Joe was alway's a pleasure and a gentleman to meet and to speak to. Miss him and i alway's will. Joe was a true "Artist" and a "Legend" that will live in our mind's and heart's forever.R.I.P., dear Joe.Love you alway's.XXXXXX
I will always remember and treasure my first time speaking to Joe in person, it was in West County Hotel in Ennis, and talking to him even though it was my first time it felt like i knew him all my life, i got my picture taken with him an i will cherish that night forever, I LOVE YOU JOE From Teresa
joe the memories i have of you is that wonderful night in moate and all the carnivals. you may be gone but you will never be forgotten. rest in peace joe your voice was magic, heaven is a happy place now with you there to enterain everyone.
Thinking of you today as always, but especially on your birthday. We all have wonderful memories of you that will stay with us forever. You made this world a better place. RIP Joe - You were the BEST x x
You were the music that made the world sing. Your loveliness, your beauty, and everything, you were the rhythm that beats in our hearts, now your passing has torn us apart, but the harmony you gave us will never die, It will grow stronger and stronger as time passes by.you came into our lives like some sweet melody,though joe you did not live very long the world will never forget joes song. love josie xx
joe came and played poker with me for the day to help raise money for a charity i was involved in.. ended up on the beer.. late night had by all .. the following night joes voice went on stage.. i got the blame for leading joe astray..(trust me it was not hard)
Joe and I shared many a happy few hours when he visited the Galty in London, and even before that at the pub which he and Ben opened back in 1980. No words could describe Joe, the only one that comes anyway near would be a star, even Joe did not realize how big a star he truly was. Not only Ireland, but vast areas of the world over, will miss his velvet voice and welcoming smile, that would put a Hollywood actor to shame. Truly a man of the people and one of only a few that can honestly be called a legend.
SINCERE SYMPATHY TO ALL THE DOLAN FAMILY.REMEMBER ALL THE GREAT NIGHTS IN THE RHU GLEN,WATERFORD.GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN. JOHN AND BRID MC DONAGH,WATERFORD.
I remember one night Joe was playing in the Victor Hotel Dun Laoghaire - as usual Ger was in the front row at the stage with my hands in the air in awe of my hero when Frankie the trumpet player was laughing down at me and pointing down - The boob-tube I was wearing had slipped down !! I nearly died - pulled it up
and carried on clapping !! Keep singing with the Angels Joe RIP Ger xxxxxxx
My treasured memory of Joe is when he used to take my daughter Aimee up on stage to sing with him at most of his shows. She was 6 when it all started she is 16 now and loves Joe to bits, she misses all the craic and more than anything she misses joe. R.I.P. Joe Luv u Lots.xxxxxxxxxxx
As Joe's song , one of my favourite, says "If I could put my life on paper" my best bits would be my several nights around the country at Joes gigs.
As soon as he would be escorted onto the stage by Denis I was gone !!! My night would be taken over by JOE !!!
God Rest your beautiful soul, Joe - miss you so much; RIP.
