Our Story

Ted Dunne started out in the entertainment business as a DJ way back in 1975, playing in the Top Hat Ballroom in Fermoy, County Cork. Here he was the resident DJ every Friday and Sunday playing before bands like Joe Dolan, Brendan Boyer, Dickie Rock, and many more. Over the years Ted established himself on the nightclub and dance hall circuit right across Ireland, and quickly became regarded as one of the best known DJs in the country.⁣

Such was the demand for Ted, he successfully secured residencies in many of the top nightclubs throughout the country, playing regularly in clubs such as Swingers in Cork, Carousel in Limerick, Route 66 in Galway, Spiders in Offaly, Banna Beach in Tralee, and many many more.

Ted was also now DJing at many of the most prestigious events nationwide including performances at The Rose Of Tralee, The Eurovision, Cork Ford Week Regatta, The Tall Ships Festival in Waterford, The Guinness Gig Rig, The Listowel Races, and so many more.

Skip forward a few years and the Ted Dunne Entertainment brand evolved and grew into the most trusted and respected entertainment agency in Munster, supplying music and entertainment packages to tens of thousands of wedding couples, hotels and venues, parties and festivals.⁣

Ted - Nobody Did It Better

Sadly, after a short illness, Ted passed away unexpectedly in February 2021. He will be greatly missed by his loving family, many friends, and everyone who knew him in the entertainment and hospitality industries.⁣
