Ronan Tynan "The Impossible Dream" DVD
Ronan Tynan "The Impossible Dream" DVD

Ronan Tynan (born 14 May 1960) is an Irish tenor singer.

He is most notable as a member of The Irish Tenors re-joining in 2011 while continuing to pursue his solo career since May 2004. In the United States, audiences have come to know and appreciate him for his involvement with that vocal group and for his renditions of "God Bless America." He is also known for participating in the 1984 and 1988 Summer Paralympics.

Tynan was born in Dublin, Ireland. His family home is in Johnstown, County Kilkenny, Ireland. He was born with phocomelia, causing both of his lower legs to be underdeveloped; his legs were unusually short (he is now 6-foot 4), his feet were splayed outward, and he had three toes on each foot. He was one of a set of twins, but his twin brother Edmond died at 11 months old. At age 20, he had his legs amputated below the knee, after a back injury from a car accident; the injury to his back made it impossible for him to continue using prosthetic legs without the amputation. Within weeks of the accident, he was climbing stairs at his college dormitory on artificial legs. Within a year, Tynan was winning in the international competitions in track and field athletics. He represented Ireland in the 1984 and 1988 Summer Paralympics, winning a total of four golds, two silvers, and one bronze medal. Between 1981 and 1984, he won 18 gold medals from various competitions and set 14 world records.

In the following years, Tynan became the first person with a disability to be admitted to the National College of Physical Education, in Limerick. He worked for about two years in the prosthetics industry, then went on to Trinity College, became a physician specialising in Orthopedic Sports Injuries, and graduated in 1993.

Encouraged to also study voice by his father Edmund, Tynan won a series of voice competition awards and joined the Irish Tenors.

A devout Roman Catholic, Tynan has appeared on Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). At the invitation of New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, he sang at the Archbishop's installation Mass in St. Patrick's Cathedral on 15 April 2009.

Presidential performances
Tynan has performed in several events President George W. Bush has attended. Some of them include:

Ronald Reagan's state funeral
George H. W. Bush's 80th birthday
Prayer service marking George W. Bush 's second inauguration
St. Patrick's Day reception with President Bush and Irish Taoiseach Bertie Ahern
2008 President's Dinner
