According to the radio news he is 'critical' in the Mater Hospital. He was known to be not well and cancelled his Christmas shows. He was taken to the Mater from his Foxrock home last night.

I heard he had leukemia. That wouldn't make him critical though. They can treat that these days can't they? Mind you, there's been rumours about his health for the last year or so. I'm not a big fan but I hope he gets well.

A great entertainer and the only showband singer to have hits outside of Ireland. Hopefully its a speedy recovery.

That's very sad to hear. Joe Dolan was known for the kindness he showed to his many fans - stories of which will no doubt be heard in the next few days, and rightly so.

May he Rest In Peace.

Seemed like a decent old skin, even if I wasn't a fan of his music. A life well lived.

He was the first international pop star from rural ireland, a great entertainer, there was no show like a joe show.
I think he once blamed Elvis's death and the dleuge of re-released elvis songs hitting the charts for his own comeback to the international charts failing. I remember him on Top of the Pops at the time. He brought a smile to the face.
