Subject: RE: Micheal O'Domhnaill has passed away...(July 2006)
i dont know how i missed this awful news till last night. 13 march.About3/4 of a year later.
watched donal lunnys life story on tv and mentioned as the credits rose.... the death of this very talented man.
i first heard him sing with mick hanley as a dueo called munroe.
I followed his career alongside all those other super talents who played contemporary irish music
got to meet him with paddy glackin in rostreavor co. down few years ago he kindly sang a song i requested "the death of queen jane"
it transported me to the care free days of my youth in mid 70s
this was a hammer blow. to all who knew him.
i send my deepest sympathy to his sisters and all his family
