Just heard the very sad news Martin Mulhaire passed away yesterday. A gentleman, great accordion player and composer. May he RIP.

Yes I just heard the sad news.
A great composer and player!
There were some brilliant clips of his playing just posted in the Irish 78s Facebook group.

Dear GITN
Thank you again for posting this news, it’s been a sad litany recently.

I just thought I’d share that one of my big reels always has been one of Martin’s, The Golden Keyboard.
I used to introduce it at gigs and concerts saying he’d composed it, but that it sounded like ‘a tune composed in Heaven for all the angels’

I wish I’d been able to tell him that. He’s certainly playing it for them right now, for sure!
Condolences to his family and friends
RIP
