Ronan Keating breaks his silence following the tragic death of his brother Ciarán

Ronan Keating has returned to the stage, following the death of his brother Ciarán.

Ciarán tragically passed away in a car accident earlier this month. Ronan understandably took a step back from social media and performing, focusing on his family during the difficult time.

But the singer returned to his work over the weekend, performing at the Uptown Festival in London.

Speaking to the crowd, he thanked fans for being so understanding as he and his family grieved.

“I didn’t know if I was going to be here tonight or not.”

“It’s been quite a time for our family, so thank you so much for giving me this moment. We’ll get through this together,” Ronan told fans.

The Irish Independent reported, Ciaran and his wife Annemarie were travelling to watch their son Ruari play for Cork City in  when the two-vehicle accident on the N5 at Ballymiles occured.

Ann Marie is said to have been treated for non-life threating injuries at Mayo University Hospital, but unfortunately Ciaran’s injuries proved fatal.

During his funeral last week, Ronan paid a beautiful tribute to his brother.

The Boyzone star sang a heartwrenching rendition of Your Song during the service.

“This song was written 25 years ago, when we lost our Mum,” he said before he began to sing.

“I shouldn’t be singing it in these circumstances but..we are, we will. This is for you.”

He also spoke about how devastating losing his brother was but extended his condolences to Ciarán’s three children.

“As a parent, all you want to do is raise your children as best you can. Ciarán and Anne Marie have done a spectacular job,” he said.
