Subject: Obit: Member, ard mhacha, 'Oliver Burns'.
From: GUEST,Fiolar

I have just learned of the death of Oliver Burns, better known to many on the cat as "ard mhacha".

It seems he passed away several weeks ago.

I got an email from Terry Devlin in County Tyrone telling me that he had tried calling him and emailing him recently and was informed by his surviving brother that he passed away in January of this year.

Oliver will always be remembered here for his knowledge of music and his love of debate.

All our thoughts and prayers are with his family circle.
R.I.P.

so sorry to hear this. he loved his Irish folk music and introduced me to many songs. also it was Oliver who got me reading Kavanagh.

he could be touchy on various subjects, but i respected him hugely and was very sorry when he abandoned mudcat. he was a great mudcatter.

Very sorry to hear this, Oliver kindly sent me a lot of excellent Irish music and introduced me to some of the lesser known Irish musicians....a good friend and an interesting poster.

Very sorry to hear this. We didn't always see eye-to-eye on things but there was never any animosiry - just respect for the other's views.

A very nice man, he will be missed.

We only met once when he came over to visit Berlin. Glad I was able to take him to a Midnight Court gig in Koepenick an - at his special request - to Glienecke Bridge in Potsdam.

My condolences to his family.

Ernest
