Self-described as only ever wanting to be a drummer had to give up his main passion in life after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 10 years ago. Never one to sit idly by Niall began penning a book of his memories, the results of which is his fascinating autobiography “Timing is Everything”. Niall has donated a signed copy to the Irish Rock ‘N’ Roll Museum.
