Máirtín Ó Muirí was a stalwart of the traditional music scene in Longford/Roscommon for almost twenty years playing guitar and singing with most of the local musicians at the regular sessions and events. He performed both at home and abroad and was always a welcome addition to any session. He played regularly in the Tally Ho bar in Longford town as well as the Shannon Bar, Tarmonbarry and Rosie’s the Lifebelt in Ballyleague, Co Roscommon.
Máirtín was a Monaghan native and taught at St Michael’s National School in Longford town and is survived by his wife Colette (Meally), son, Daire; daughters, Alaidh and Molly.
Máirtín passed away on November 24th 2017 and in honour of his commitment and lifelong connection to traditional Irish music, Feile Strokestown welcomes his family and friends to celebrate in an evening of music, songs and stories.
