Another of Muiris' wonderful achievements was the publishing of this superb magazine - just look at the breadth of coverage:

Probably a good time to draw the attention of people who may not be aware of the Willie Clancy Summer School, to the website:

I came across Muiris at Sabhal Mór Ostaig in Skye once. I was surprised he knew who I was and complemented me on an article I'd had published in "Lá" about the refugee's farm in Millisle Co Down.

I have of course been at the Willie Clancy week a number of times over the years, and I must also be grateful to the founders for inspiring other summer schools around the country.

I learned the sad news via the Irish Times:

TRIBUTES WERE paid yesterday to the driving force behind the Willie Clancy Summer School over the past four decades, Muiris Ã" Rócháin, who has died.

Administrative director of the summer school and long-time friend Harry Hughes said yesterday that “Muiris leaves behind a tremendous legacy to Miltown Malbay and to Irish music and culture in generalâ€쳌. The 67-year-old Dingle native suffered a stroke last year and Mr Hughes said “people were delighted to see Muiris at a number of events at the summer school this year even though he was in a wheelchair. “Muiris bore his illness with tremendous courage and dignity.â€쳌 Along with Martin Talty and Breandán Breathnach, Mr Ã" Rócháin established the summer school in 1972 in memory of their friend, celebrated piper Willie Clancy. The school today attracts traditional Irish musicians, singers and dancers from around the world and provides an annual economic boost to the west Clare town of Miltown Malbay on the first week of every July. Former Clare
mayor and current local councillor Christy Curtin (Ind) said yesterday: “Muiris had the vision and foresight to set up the
school and he leaves behind a fantastic legacy. “The school has stood the tests of time.â€쳌 Mr Curtin said: “Muiris was a scholar and a teacher, but was a man of the people. “He was very unassuming, but had a brilliant mind and had the respect of people throughout west and north Clare.â€쳌 Mr Hughes said: “Muiris was an educator in the broadest sense. He taught maths and Irish at St Joseph’s secondary school at Spanish Point, but he had a great interest in Irish folklore, music and culture.â€쳌

Joe,
Can you correct the title for me please? The Capital O should have an accent line (fada)over it and no apostrophe between the O and the R and the a in the surname should have an accent line over it.

Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam uasal. Fear den scoth ab ea é Muiris, fila, cineálta agus cabhrach. Ár mbeannachtaí chuig Úna agus an clann go léir.

It was expected but the sense of loss is overwhelming.

The traditional arts in Ireland, Muiris' interest and influence reached well beyond music and song, have lost a giant of a man.

Sad to report the death of Muiris Ó Rocháin, Director of Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy (Willie Clancy Summer School) after a battle with cancer. A man with his finger very firmly on the pulse of tradition. His legacy is inestimable!
