Joe Lynch graduated with honours in music but turned to acting at a young age. Prior to this he had a range of careers from horse breaker to tree feller to manager of a wine business. He was also a fine footballer and turned down an offer to play professional soccer in order to join the Radio Éireann players in 1947. He became a well-known personality and appeared in many radio and TV productions on both sides of the Irish Sea including the 1960s comedy Never Mind the Quality Feel the Width. In 1979 he joined Coronation Street playing Ron Mather Elsie Tanners boyfriend.
But it is for his role as Dinny Byrne in the popular RTE soaps Bracken and Glenroe in his native Ireland that Joe Lynch will be best remembered - a role he played for 18 years until May 2000. Joe was also a fine singer with many recordings to his name. Here he sings Irish favourites such as Molly Malone Rare Old Times Lovely Leitrim and Muirsheen Durkin.
