Why Ciaran Mac Mathuna meant so much to Irish music

Just two quotes:

For 50 years Ciaran was the voice of Irish traditional music on Irish radio. His work over the years saved the music of 100s of players who’s unique style and phrasing would have been lost without the recordings he organised. His beautiful voice was part of our Sunday mornings for decades. It was always a pleasure to meet him and share a moment. His legacy is huge but his presence will be sadly missed. – Christy Moore

Coming hard on the heels of the death of Liam Clancy, the passing of Ciarán MacMathúna is a signal that we are in the process of losing a great generation of Irish folk pioneers. – Niall Stokes, Hot Press editor

Enough said.
