Billy Mac – DJ, fundraiser and formerly a psychiatric nurse

Billy Mac is another one of those Mullingar characters who everyone knows, but probably what they don’t know is that the one and only Billy Mac will be 80 years young on Sunday, 28 May.

As well as being known for his regular Sunday night rock and roll slot on Midlands 103 between 8pm and 10pm, Billy also hosted sports and other shows on Midlands radio through the years.

He spent 42 years as a psychiatric nurse in St Loman’s Hospital, while being lead singer with the semi-pro Classic Showband for many of those years.

For the last 20 years, he is better known for his great fundraising for the Carers Society in Mullingar and is putting the finishing touches to his16th fundraising concert for the Carers that will take place in the Greville Arms Hotel on 5 September.
