Subject: RE: DTStudy: Spancil Hill
Just back from Spancil Hill. What a weekend. Singing started at about 9.30 on Friday night and there must have been well in excess of 50singers. The quality was exceptional.

Robbie recweived 4 awards for his contribution to singing. It was brilliant and Robbie ended the presentaion with a rendition of his song about the 1955 Fleagh in Ennis in which he mentioned over 40 musicians, 30 of whom have since passed on.

A fitting tribute to a great friend.

He is in great form and there are many more years left in the great man yet.
