More recently Mark has been touring in Europe with Songs from Ireland: Old and New.
Since 2002, Mark has released 4 studio albums and 2 live recordings. His second album, the acclaimed Ghosts, was named 2005’s Album of the Year by the Irish Voice and referred to by Billboard Magazine as “a collection of superb songs delivered with a quiet intensity that will endear itself to listeners”.
In November of 2013, Mark collaborated with Glen Hansard on a new version of his song Christmas Biscuits as a charity single for St. Vincent DePaul of Ireland. The song hit the Top 40 and was made the song of the week on Today FM, Ireland’s largest commercial radio station.
