Subject: Joe Lynch - RIP
From: Fiolar
Date: 01 Aug 01 - 04:57 PM

Sad to relate that the great Irish comedian, actor and singer Joe Lynch died today August 1st 2001 age 76 in Alicante, Spain where he had been admitted to hospital. He passed away at 6pm. Growing up in Ireland, I and many others will remember his Sunday afternoon show on Irish Radio, "Living With Lynch." A singer of no mean accomplishments, his best known songs included "Cottage By The Lee" and "The Old Rustic Bridge." I remember seeing him playing to a packed house in the late-fifies in the Metropolitan, Edgeware Road, London, long since gone also alas. He progressed to television appearing in the sit-com "Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width" as well as in "Coronation Street." Lately he was a regular in the Irish series "Glenroe." He appeared in such films as "The Outsider" with Sterling Hayden. A gentleman of the old school, Joe who was a Corkman will be greatly missed by his many friends and fans. "Go ndeine Dia trocaire ar a anam." Farewell Joe, I will now listen to some of your recordings and "choirs of angels sing thee to thy rest." Tonight you are in the company of the greats, including Sir Harry and many others.

Sad indeed Fiolar, I remember seeing Joe in the early 50`s in Lurgan Town Hall, the oul acting talent was showing in those early days, as Joe went through his comedy role and also sand his favourite, The Cottage by the Lee. Joe hosted a programme on RTE Radio a few years ago, and he resurrected some old favourite songs and singers. God rest his Soul, A true son of Cork. Slan Ard Mhacha.

Folk may be interested to know that a CD of Joe's songs was relaeased in February 2001. It is called "A Little Bit of Ireland" and includes as well as "Cottage By the Lee" such oldies as "Galway Bay"; "The Old Bog Road"; "The Bard of Armagh" and "Rose of Mooncoin" and many others. It is available in the UK from Amazon.

One of my earliest musical memories is of a radio programme called "The Balladmakers Saturday Night" on Irish radio (early fifties?), on which Joe was a regular.

I will never forget the interview he had with a schoolboy on his "Living with Lynch" radio show. Joe would always ask the child to tell a story and this particular child told of a horse that ran away from a circus that came to town.

   In all the confusion the horse apparently fell into a deep hole, a quarry I assume.

   They couldn't get the horse out so they had to shoot the poor animal.

   And said Joe to the child, " did they shoot him in the hole"?

   Oh No sir the child said, they shot him in the head!
