Mary Byrne’s story is the stuff of fairytales and movies. She’s the Tesco supermarket checkout lady who took a chance in life at the age of fifty by auditioning for Britain and Ireland’s biggest TV talent show, the X Factor. Although she was pipped for a place in the 2010 X Factor final, Mary won the hearts of millions with her big, warm personality and powerhouse voice. And when she finally got her life-changing break in the world of show business, Mary Byrne, a bright and ambitious woman with a wealth of life’s experiences under her belt, was determined to make the most of it.
Mary has performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her historic State visit to Ireland, and shared the stage with Neil Diamond to perform for over 55,000 fans at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium and has performed all over Ireland, The UK, Europe and is a regular performer in the USA in theatres and on luxury cruises.
Having achieved multi platinum status on her music albums, Mary has just released her 4th Album, “Mary Byrne sings the 60’s”
She followed her dream of acting on stage and screen. She performed on the West End Touring Production of Grease – The Musical starring as Teen Angel and she performed a sixteen-week sell-out tour of Ireland starring in “Menopause – The Musical”. She starred in the Cheerios Panto at the Tivoli Theatre as the Good Queen Mary and in recent years has starred in the Longford Panto.
She starred in several sell out tours of the hilarious play “Dirty Dusting” and also performed along with Eilish O’Carroll in a brand new production “Waiting for Gateaux”
Mary was honoured to be made an Ambassador of the Make-A-Wish Foundation which grants wishes for sick children. Never shy of a challenge Mary bravely abseiled down one of Dublin’s tallest buildings for Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Mary also featured as a leader on “Celebrity Operation Transformation” on RTE1 which saw her transform herself inside and out!
2023 saw Mary tour for six months in UK Scotland, Wales and Ireland in Menopause the Musical 2.
She is looking forward to a Christmas run in Joel’s Restaurant in Dublin followed by a starring role again in this years Longford Panto!
