Mark began his career as a MyTown member.

Mark Sheehan was born on October 29, 1976, in the south inner-city neighborhood of the Liberties. He started his career as a member of the MyTown band, which was formed in 1996. Tony Dunne, Paul Walker, and Terry Daly were the other members. Tony eventually left the band and moved to the United States with his boyhood buddy, Danny O’Donoghue. The team then began composing and producing songs for other music business figures. They were eventually joined by drummer Glen Power, resulting in the formation of The Script.

Mark declined to join the band on their Great Hits tour last year. Danny believes it was because his family needed him at the moment. Danny mentioned in an interview with Sunday World:

“He’s been the driving force behind The Script for so long that I told him, ‘If you want to take a bit of time out for your family, you are more than welcome to, and I insist on you going and doing it.’”

The Script’s self-titled first album was published in 2008, followed by five more by 2019. In addition, they have released 22 singles, four EPs, and two compilation albums.
