Ronan Keating

Born in Dublin, it was as a member of the band Boyzone that Ronan Keating first burst on to the pop scene during the mid-1990s. Boyzone’s first UK hit, Love Me For A Reason, reached No.2 in the charts in 1995 and by the end of the 1990s the band had enjoyed six UK No 1 singles and three No 1 albums. Keating has enjoyed success as a solo artist, with hits such as When You Say Nothing At All and Life Is A Rollercoaster. Says his greatest moment in the Championship was leading after two days in the Team Championship with Graeme Storm.
