I want to extend my wishes to you this Easter and hope that you will have a loving peaceful one.
I was taken aback this morning when I heard of the passing of one of our fiddlers ; Karen Farais, may she rest in peace.
I had just met her in London recently when she travelled to hear the band at the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith.
She was a very kind person with a lot of love. She loved traditional Irish music and fiddle music in particular.
I’m very sad to hear of her passing.
Life is short so lets make a difference for the better while we are here.
Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar anam Karen bhocht.
