Members of the Mullingar Fleadh Committee joined the rest of the country and the world on Monday evening, 9 January, as news of the death of traditional musician and singer, Seamus Begley broke.

Hailing originally from Ballydavid, in south-west Kerry, Mr Begley, who had been in Limerick hospital, passed away after a short illness, aged 73 years.

Seamus was a renowned accordion player in particular, and a great singer, coming from a family that have a very long history of traditional music.
