Somewhere in my memory I remember seeing them live - something to treasure for ever - this is a sad loss - but memories will always keep the Clancy Brothers alive!

May he join the others and perform in the eternal resting ground to the enjoyment of many souls!

Liam Clancy is a massive loss to the world of music. Bob Dylan proclaimed him to be the 'greatest ballad singer' of all time, and few would dispute this. I was lucky to see him many years ago along with Tommy Makem, a memory I will treasure always. Rest in peace Liam, the Holy Ground is yours forever.
