At the age of 18, Paddy moved to England before immigrating to the U.S.A in 1964. Settling in the Bronx, Paddy earned a living playing the guitar and singing around the bars before venturing into the bar business himself. He opened 3 bars, 2 in the Bronx and one in Jersey City. Then he started Dublin Jukeboxes, renting jukeboxes, video games, pool tables and then ATM’ across the Burroughs and Westchester.
Paddy and his life partner, Eileen, lived life to to fullest. Together they enjoyed playing golf at their home club the Links Unionvale.
