Seamus Moore

Rock Around the Clock is a highly entertaining book with Informative credentials. With a year-by-year review of over 291 Top 10 songs from three countries (USA, UK, and Ireland) the book contains a year and song index making it easy to dip into for your favourite year or song.


Seamus Moore was born in Thurles, County Tipperary in 1946. In his early twenties, at the height of the showband scene, he travelled the country playing the trombone, first with The Jack Hanley Showband from Templemore and later with the Enniskillen-based The Skyrockets.

Forty years on, Seamus shared his love of music, particularly the sixties (especially the Beatles) presenting music programmes on local radio. The research required for the radio shows motivated Seamus to write his first book ‘All Together Now, We Love The Beatles’ in 2015.
