I'm not sure if he ever recorded the actual "Danny Boy", but - if you like those sad Irish ballads, I'd check him out, anyway.
I mentioned John McCormack in a post just above yours! He has done "Danny Boy" and glorious it is. I wrote:
There is a fabulous version of "Danny Boy" on a Telarc SACD called "A Celtic Spectacular" with Erich Kunzel - Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. Just beautiful singing by the tenor John McDermott. Track 15. Excellent sonics, as would be expected from Michael Bishop.
