Daniel Healy talks about Ronan's album
You may remember Dan from Once, where he played Eamon? Him and Ronan have spent a lot of time writing songs together and recording for Ronan's new album. Dan recently shared his thoughts on the album via his Facebook page and this makes us feel so, so proud!
"Wow. Not being biased. But it is going to really shock a lot of people. It's real, raw but sticks to true who he is and what he has now become. It's a wonderful record and I'm proud to be a part of something so transformational and inspiring."
Have you preordered the CD yet?
New merchandise in the Universal Music Store
Universal have added a beautiful new mug to their official web store featuring one of the images from the new 2016 wall calendar. Check out a larger photo of them item in the online store - and treat yourself (keep in mind Christmas is just over a month away as well)! We think it's the best Ronan mug ever and if this photo doesn't wake you up over your breakfast then nothing will.
Universal are now selling the 2016 calendar too, but depending on where you live, it's probably worth comparing the price and shipping cost with Danilo and other websites selling it because that might be cheaper.
New movie role: "Another Mother's Son"
We've been waiting years for this! After being cast for a couple of movies which in the end never happened, Ronan's playing the role of Harold Gould in new movie Another Mother's Son, for which filming started in early November. Other cast members include John Hannah, Amanda Abbington, Susan Hampshire, and Jenny Seagrove.
A cinema release is planned for 2016. Watch this space for more details as soon as we hear anythiing!

'Live at the O2' now available on Amazon and iTunes
You can now also buy one of Ronan's Fires Live CD's - the one from London's O2 Arena - in various other online stores, if you haven't purchased it directly from Concert Live yet. Personally I think it's a pity that only the London one seems to be available now, because personally I don't think it is the best one out of the four that were recorded. However, it is definitely worth getting!
iTunes UK, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand - and most other countries; just search your local iTunes for "Ronan Keating Live 2013"!
