Book of Condolences

Joanne, Very sad to learn of the passing of your beloved dad, sincere condolences to you, your mam and all your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May he Rest In Peace.

Mary Crispie

Trad music has lost one of its most ardent supporters. John is, and was one of lives gentlemen and manys a corner I have turned at some wee Fleadh and there he was. To have such a passion for music is a blessing in life and his love for our music has created beautiful music through his children. Ag smaoineamh oraibh uilig inniu. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis

Condolences to Cathal and all who loved and will miss John. I would always look forward to meeting him and Terry O’Connor at music events up and down the country, often in the most unlikely places. R.I.P John, another of music’s thorough gentlemen.
