Furey's accordian player dies, aged 54
Paul Furey, the accordion player and youngest member of the folk group, The Fureys, has died aged 54.

He died last night at Beaumont Hospital in Dublin after a short illness.

From Ballyfermot in Dublin, the eldest members of the Furey clan, Eddie and Finbar were responsible for bringing the uillean pipes to international attention during the folk music revival of the 1960s.

Joined by Paul and George, The Fureys and Davey Arthur enjoyed an unexpected British Top 20 hit in 1981 with the song, 'When You Were Sweet Sixteen'.

Paul is survived by his wife Catherine, their three sons and his brothers - Eddie, Finbar and George.

Tragic news indeed. So many of us in Coventry remember Paul and the other Fureys in The Dyer's Arms in the 70's, and all the wonderful sessions that were held there. The end of an era, perhaps, as well as the loss of a dear friend? My condolences to all the family. Dave Bennett

Oops hit submit before I finished my message- I remember the Fureys well as part of my initiation into folk music. I sometimes think it was happening all around me and I never got to see half of it! Goodnight and God's Speed Mr Furey.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about this. The Furey's were such a major part of my growing up - I was so glad to see them in concert in Melbourne a few years back. At family gatherings we sang their songs, Steal Away was played at my uncle's funeral.

Sadly missed.

Furey's played in Rugby about five years ago. Still talking about it today.

God Bless You Paul.

I am shocked and saddened to hear this terrible news, the Fureys were part of my life for so many years and their help and generosity I will remember always. Words fail me at the moment. My deepest sympathy to Catherine, Finbar, Eddie, and George, and all the family.

Pat.

So sad - the ranks of the great entertainers continue to be thinned. I saw the group in Norwich many years ago.
The words of the Celtic blessing seem appropriate here.
"May the earth rest easy on you, when at last you lie under it.
May the earth rest so lightly over you, that your spirit may be out from under it quickly;
Amd up, and off and on its way to God."

Paul came along after my time in Coventry, so I never met him, but my commiserations to Eddie and Finn and the family.

He was always the life of the party
Joking around
His generosity outshines every one of them!

I PLALYED THE FUREYS OVER ST PATRICKS DAY AND WEEKEND AND ITS ALWAYS WITH PRIDE WE THINK OF SUCH TALENT. PEOPLE STUDY MUSIC FOR YEARS AND NEVER ACHIEVE SUCH HEIGHTS THE FUREYS ACHIEVED. THEY AREL CREDIT TO THEIR PARENTS. A BIG TRIBUTE TO THEM TO THE DEEGANS FROM WALKINSTOWN AND MAHONS FROM MAYO. CHEERS.
