When he was just 14, Damian joined Celtic Thunder, a group that has released over twelve studio albums, played on top American chat shows, and has opened the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

He has performed in two seasons of Glee, one season of The Glee Project, was the lead in the family Christmas movie Santa Fake, was a feature performer in eight Celtic Thunder PBS specials, a highlighted performer in two additional PBS specials, and appears on eight Celtic Thunder DVDs.

He has appeared solo and as part of an ensemble in a dozen Celtic Thunder CDs, and as an independent artist has released three full-length CDs, four EPs, and multiple singles. His voice is featured in the Circle Round storytelling podcast The Piper and The Pooka. With Celtic Thunder he performed at the White House and Madison Square Garden, and as a solo artist he was featured as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month on The Today Show.

Damian McGinty Dancing With The Stars

Glee star Damian McGinty was the seventh celebrity announced for the Irish version of Dancing with the Stars. He joined the RTE One reality show in January 2023. McGinty was partnered with professional dancer Kylee Vincent.

Speaking to Ray Foley on Today FM, the 30-year-old actor said: “Dancing with the Stars is a major challenge for me, one I am really excited and also very nervous about.

“Dancing has never been a strong point of mine, quite the opposite, but I’m eager to get to work. It feels like a great time to simply go out there and enjoy the experience, and I can’t wait to get started.”

2023 Dancing with the Stars line-up of celebrities also include Leah O’Rourke, Panti Bliss, Brooke Scullion, Paul Brogan, Suzanne Jackson, Dr. Marie Cassidy, Shane Byrne, Stephanie Roche, Carl Mullen, and Kevin McGahern.

The Irish singer was offered a spot on the US version of Dancing with the Stars off the back of his success playing Rory Flanagan. He felt it wasn’t the right time.

He told RSVP Live: “I made the decision based off of that a couple of years previously I had done a reality show, The Glee Project, which got me my role on Glee. I just felt like it was too soon to do another reality show. [The offer] did turn my head, I was interested, but it wasn’t the right time. I’m really, really glad I waited because I think it would have been a complete car crash back then. I’m glad I waited until my body parts matured!”
