Irish Solicitor Paddy Goodwin wins plaudits for his music

Via the Irish Law Gazette.. Good on him we say..

Co Louth-based solicitor Paddy Goodwin has been given eight and a half stars for his latest album of guitar music by Hot Press magazine.

The lawyer, who specialises in criminal and defamation law, is a long-standing musician who has also been busy practising as a solicitor in Drogheda for 30 years.

‘The Church of the Here and Now’ is the debut album from Paddy Goodwin and the Holy Ghosts.

It has garnered favourable reviews, as well as being selected as Album Of The Week on four different radio stations including Lyric Fm.

Deeply influenced by New Wave and punk music, Goodwin has played with noted Irish musicians such as The Atrix, Horslips, and the Radiators From Space (for whom he played bass) in a long and colourful career.

Gigging since the mid-1970s, Paddy often played six nights a week around his native County Monaghan.

On the new album, Paul Brady duets with Goodwin on ‘In the Blue of the Night’, which is available for listening on Spotify.
