The son of a bicycle shop owner, Joe Dolan is one of the most successful vocalists in Ireland. The youngest of eight children, Dolan was born into a musical family. As a youngster, he often played washboard to accompany his sisters' singing. Leaving home after losing his father at the age of eight and his mother when he was 15, Dolan served an apprenticeship as a newspaper compositor for the Westmeath Examiner. Music, however, continued to attract Dolan's attention. After performing with his brother, Ben, on the dancehall circuit, he joined the Drifters Showband when he completed his apprenticeship in 1964. His first single, a cover of Del Shannon's "Answer to Everything," reached number four on the Irish charts.
