Subject: Liam Clancy, Health

This was reported in Irish Music Magazine after the Clancy Festival

**
CLANCY SHOW BECOMES IMPROMPTU CLANCY TRIBUTE
Liam Clancy is unwell. He should have headlined the Saturday night concert at Carrick on Suir's Clancy Brother's Festival on June 13th but was unable to attend due to poor health.

His manager David Teevan apologised to the 600+ sell out crowd and told them that Liam was suffering from fibrosis of the lungs which made it difficult for him to breath and he reluctantly would not be able to sing this evening.

The singer Maxi had visited Liam earlier in the afternoon, as part of a writing project she is carrying out and said he was in great spirits, was working on editing an autobiographical movie, and she conveyed his best wishes and apologies for not being 100% to perform on the night. Each act on the night spoke warmly about Liam and all were quick to add that his contribution to our lives was immeasureable.

The show became a tribute to Liam Clancy, it included performances by Kevin Evans, members of Danu and a finale led by Liams' nephew Finbarr Clancy.

We send our best wishes to Liam and his family and wish him a speedy recovery.
Cheers
Sean L

I'll echo that from San Diego. Liam and his brothers, along with Tommy Makem, supplied a lot of energy and a great deal of good humor to go with their music. A whole new generation of young people were exposed to Irish music thanks to them.

I wish the best for Liam. I have fond memories of jamming with him. (I'll never forget his rendition of "Lang A-Growin'"). I hope for a full recovery.

I can't help but think of the night I got a call from south about Tommy. And, when I do, I think about the song by Rawlins Cross which was written the night the Emile Benoit died called Long Night.

It's a song that will always reverberate in my mind when we lose another of the good ones.
