Philip Donnelly R.I.P.
With great sadness I learned that my old friend Philip Donnelly has passed away. Philip was a brilliant guitarist and visited Boyle several times. Philip came originally from Dublin and in his early days was often referred to as ‘The Clontarf Cowboy’. Many years followed in the USA playing lead guitar for luminaries The Everly Brothers, John Prine, Nancy Griffith and a list ‘as long as your arm’. Thank you Philip for the memories.
