All of the following tributes are 100% genuine and unedited.
They mostly come from emails sent to Eric from people who enjoyed his performance enough to get in touch.
'Scottie' - the highlight of our trip!!!
We were here on Tuesday night for dinner and decided to stay on when we heard that there was a comedian/singer coming on. We weren't expecting much but wow… Scottie was the best act we've ever seen and completely made our trip! Apparently he's not here every week though so be sure to find out when he's going to be on next. It's a lovely pub with a good crowd, even mid-week (so maybe pre-book a table if you want to be close to the stage) but Scottie was the best part about The Danny Mann for us. Amazing!!!!!
Hello there, Eric !
I just wanted to thank you proprerly for your comedy songs and delightful sense of humour.
Now that I came across your e-mail, I hope I can reach you at last.
We met in a street of Killarney, the 5th September and then a few times the next evenings.
I, along with my best friend, are two French girls. Maybe you remember us, I was in a wheelchair. If not, it's alright of course !
Anyway, I have to tell you are a very fond memory of our trip to Killarney.
I remembered your name ever since.
Yesterday, I managed to find your Hallelujah version on YouTube, thank you so much for this — for the song and your post both.
It still cracks me up and since you, I have never been able to listen to this tune without laughing.
Same with your Ryanair Song.
So, thank you for what you’re doing and I hope you’ll succeed in getting the recognition you deserve.
Please, keep on writing and singing (on youTube too)?
Best wishes from France
Our problem this time though was mostly to do with Scottie not being here. He was the highlight of our trip last time and we took friends this time to see him and we were told that he doesn't play here anymore. So sad about this, we had our friends so hyped up about him! He really made the place something special.

Saturday was amazing day me and my partner were all round Edinburgh , and when we met you , I thought you were fantastic Eric amazing show we would watch you all the time , it was so entertaining and funny , that's why we came back the second time last night , you were the best thing we had seen all day at Edinburgh , you made us laugh all the time , we would follow you every were now , as we are your biggest fans , we came from Glasgow Brian and Anne , loved all your songs ,
We are from the Netherlands and we were there with friends. Frank, my husband, recorderd a song and we sent it to our American friends, which are living in the south of France ( where we spent also some time). Our friends lived at new Mexico,but they have left America because of the right climat.
They were enjoying your song.
Thanks again for this wonderfull experience.
It toke me quite a while to found your name. Because at that moment we did not ask, we were just listening.
I saw you play in Killarney about one month ago, purchased three of your
CD's, and sang "Para Bailar la Bamba" with you. Your renditions and singing
are "lovely", as you all say. Thank you for making me chuckle and laugh so
much! The America of today is a sad sight-for those who can see through
the "caca". Perhaps our paths will cross again in Ireland.
Waltzing Matilda, that you so beautifully portrayed in emotion and music, will haunt me as much as Danny Boy! I never realised what a poignant ballad Danny Boy was, untilI listened to your words. I can’t stop but crying, or at least a lump in my throat when I hear it, but for me that special moment was in Killarney when you sang it to us on that cold, dank, evening in May. A memory that will live with me forever.
I am sure we will return, probably en famille, but do you ever come to England? Perhaps we could organise an Irish evening - or perhaps you
could come to sing at our Golden Wedding?
Look forward to hearing from you.
Suzie in the Cherry hat!
Keep on playing - you are absolutely brill!
Message: hi scottie. I don't Know if i Found the right guy, but it seems so because we are Looping at a Video which i digitalizise from 1996. i think we met at an Restaurant in Tenerife Close to Playa de las Americas. i was 25 Years old and my wife just gave me a Wedding proposal when returning from a Gomera Day Trip. We discussed our Marriage in the Restaurant while you were singing "cant help falling in Love" and some other Songs. Coul it Be that i Found you After so many Years ? We married 1997 and have 3 Kids and befand Big Fans of Scotland. We are Even Running a Whisky Store in Germany and Travel every Year to Scotland. Would Love to hear from you. Ralf
I am so thrilled to receive your special CD of ‘Scottie Ballads’ in yesterday afternoon’s post, and have been playing it ever since –I just love it, and I must say that you have done a fantastic rendition of ‘The Band Played Waltzing Matilda’, and everything else on the CD as well, and another special song you included is Danny Boy’, my late Husband’s favourite which we played at his funeral – absolutely love the entire CD Scottie and I can’t thank you enough for sending me an updated CD – is exactly as I enjoyed listening to you that night in wonderful Killarney.
Special thanks once again Scottie, and my very best wishes for your future career from,
