Tommy Peoples — Rest In Peace Donegal-born fiddler Tommy Peoples sadly passed away last weekend at the age of 70. Tommy moved to Clare,
a county whose people and music he loved dearly and where he spent over 30 years living in Toonagh. Regarded as a master of his craft, Tommy enchanted audiences at home and abroad with his unique style of music. He gained critical acclaim with The Bothy Band back in the mid-70s, and performed with the
Kilfenora Céilí Band the Green Linnet Céilí Band, 1691 and was also a well-established solo performer in his own right. 

Tommy Peoples had the distinction of receiving two TG4 Gradam Awards, for Traditional Musician of the Year in 1998 and Composer of the Year in 2013, a feat not achieved before or since. He also had a great love of the Irish language, which he considered to be a very important part of Irish life. In July 2015, he launched a self-published book “Ó Am go hAm - From Time to Time.” The book combines a fiddle tutor by Tommy, and a complete notation of 130 original tunes and includes many stories and incidents from his life and musical career. 

We extend our deepest sympathy to his loving family, relatives and to his many friends and neighbours.
