Mick Fitzgerald is an actor, musician and writer. He worked for the 'Irish Press' from 1972-1978 and 1984-1986 and still writes occasionally for the Irish Independent.

He is also a prolific short-story writer and was short-listed for the prestigious "Hennessy Award" in Ireland in 1986.
He went back into full-time Drama by accident in 2000 when he appeared as a musician in an Arthouse movie called "How Harry Became a Tree".

Mick Fitzgerald And The Bacha Trio - Light Sleeper
This is a selection of his own songs, written over a long period. His songs have frequently been recorded by others, including June Tabor, but Mick is their best interpreter.
...
Mick Fitzgerald, who previously had been active in other bands, joined the Wild Geese in 1983, as a singer, guitar player and bodhrán player. After the Wild Geese stopped being active he concentrated on acting and writing.
But now this multi-talented artist is back with a solo-album, after a break of six years: "Damage limitation", which he worked on for almost three years.
...
Mick Fitzgerald really can afford to renounce the use of technical tricks. This way his very personal compositions become really effective. The music is unrestrained and not perfect and that makes it very effective and alive. All songs were written by himself. "Damage limitation" is a serious and very honest album made by one of the stalwarts of Irish music.
Mick Fitzgerald & The Bacha Trio: Damage limitation Mick Fitzgerald & The Bacha Trio: Damage limitation In Deutschland hatte und hat irische Musik viele Freunde.
...
Mick Fitzgerald, der zuvor in anderen Bands Erfahrung sammelte, gesellte sich 1983 zu den "Wild Geese", als Sänger, Gitarrist und Bodhránspieler. Eigentlich ist er Schauspieler und Journalist. Nachdem die "Wild Geese" ihre Aktivitäten zurückfuhren, konzentrierte er sich wieder auf die Schauspielerei und aufs Schreiben.
...
Mick Fitzgerald has been in and around the Irish music world for over thirty years. He must have felt a few times that his shot at fame (we won't mention fortune) was also on the never-never. But singing and song writing got into his blood and he found the Irish song-stream to be profusely inspirational. His first solo album, Light Sleeper from 2003, stitched together a set of old songs with some crafty new ones -it was a memorable, if belated, debut for a singer-songwriter. His new record, Damage Limitation, follows the same pattern and it's a more polished but equally powerful creation (available from Claddagh Records).
...
On the new album, Fitzgerald opens Conquistador with these lines, An eight-year-old Conquistador / Running barefoot down the backlane /
...
Fitzgerald set this song in the mood of 1957 but when I first heard those lines, I thought they described some of the frantic parts of Irish experience under the sway of the Celtic Tiger.
...
Fitzgerald does recreate the cultural and emotional terrain of certain periods of life with his songs. See her after twenty years in a shop somewhere /
...
Keenan, says Fitzgerald, Shone like a diamond / that never was found.
...
His best-known song, Rathdrum Fair, traveled to the U.S. with Carnahan in the late 1970s, entered the North American folk circuit, and came back to Ireland for a holiday in 2000 where Fitzgerald heard it sung by a Scottish busker.
...
Mick Fitzgerald's music tells us why it's important not to forget musical histories.
