Martin McGuinness funeral

On 23rd march 2017 I had the honour of playing for deputy first Minister Martin McGuinness’ funeral in his home town of Derry. I was asked to play a lament on Uilleann Pipes outside his house and then contribute to the bagpiping from there to the church and pipe the cortege to the cemetery. I shared the honour of performing at the sad event with artists such as Matt Molloy, Christy Moore and Frances Black.
