I have heard that concertina player Noel Hill was assaulted recently in Galway. I have no more details. Can anyone throw more light on this?

I'm so sorry to hear that - the early news reports said he'd been sent home. Can you give us an update as to what's happening? I wish him the best for a strong, full recovery.

The information directly from Galway is pretty definite that the incident came about because of a dispute with a local builder.

Can someone please blue-clickify that link? Either I or my mobile device (not sure which) is useless at touchscreen copy-pasting. Thanks -

Alan Day- Yes, this attack occurred in December of 2008. The sentencing has recently been set. I presume that's why GUEST,Learaí na Láibe has revived the old 2008-2009 thread.

Such a shame he continues to have such difficulty as a result of his injuries.
I wish him healing and music.
