The Kelly Family was an Irish-American-European music group.

They have sold over 20 million albums since the early 1980s.

The head of the family, Daniel Kelly Sr., was, in earlier days, "a clean-cut, intense conservative Catholic" who studied for the priesthood.

Kelly Family

Daniel Kelly Sr. was described, allegedly by his children, as having a "tyrannical, controlling streak".

Jimmy, has criticized his father for not giving his children a formal education and imposing on them a "Huckleberry Finn" lifestyle.

He said that as The Kelly Family group began to dissolve, he had almost nothing left of the millions of dollars the family had earned.

The oldest daughter, Kathy, who managed most of the finances of the family, said that Daniel was more "free spirit than tyrant" but that "we got too big too fast, we should have cut things down some or handed over to professional management."[8]


According to : The Kelly Family - Wikipedia:

Daniel Sr
was born in 1930 in Erie, Pennsylvania. 

He died in 2002, in Cologne, Germany[13]

Joanne married Daniel in 1957 and is the mother of Danny, Caroline, Kathy, and Paul. 

She went to Spain with Daniel about 1965, but returned to US with son Danny and apparently lost contact with other members of the family. Divorced Dan.[14]

Barbara Ann from Fitchburg, Massachusetts, had eight children with Daniel Sr..

She died in 1982, in Belascoain, Spain[13].


John ("Johnny")  was the lead singer on many songs, and the favorite of young women fans early in the history of the group. 

In 2001, he married Maite (née Itoiz, b. 27 January 1975), a Spanish opera singer.

Danny, in 2011, was reported to be resident in a home for autistic people.[15]

Jimmy, known as the rebel of the family, became involved in drugs and alcohol, and later joined a monastery briefly. 

Paddy joined the Saint-John community where he was a monk. He recently quit the monastery and by late 2011 had returned to music-making.





  1. Just like The Jacksons, The Osmonds and so on. MK ULTRA kids, poor souls....

  2. I met this man Daniel Kelly Snr with his children in a pub in Doolin County Clare in the late 1970's. The man was more than tyrannical (though his children behaved as if he wasn't there. They ignored his extreme behaviour), he was a loud and raging fascist. He lectured the pub about all kinds of degeneracy in modern Ireland but bestowed great praises on the German people and Hitler. At the time I thought the man a dangerous, raging lunatic. Only recently (having become convinced that the human gas chambers story is a huge lie) have I entertained the idea that the poor fellow might have been right.


    1. Right maybe about stupid dumb Irish family, talented anyway...
      But why you, VILLAGE IDIOT, doubt the gas chambers ?
      I do came from a country where they existed !!!!

      Another Western f***head are you.
      Jewish holocaust industry one thing,
      but camps existed, you moron !
      Shame, you ignorant" con-spirationist"

  3. Just watched it. That's him in the Greensleeves video getting to the point, eulogising Germany towards the end. Imagine this man after 15 pints and a row with his wife, roaring at you about what a great guy Adolf Hitler was. An experience for which anyone might (after four decades in recovery) feel grateful.

  4. PS. What's this doing on aanirfan? Is there some political significance to this mentalist?

    1. SHAME ON YOU ! Irish folks were known for some hidden collabo with German fascist.

      Any reason for Irish to kick the British from the back was understandable, right, but NOT for the price of appreciating third reich.
      Shame, No One !
