Fantastic Singer Derek McCormack Left Us

Derek McCormack, 30-year-long-friend to Patsy, unexpectedly passed away last week during the Florida/Carribean Cruise. As far as we know today, it was a major heart attack that took one of the best Irish singers from us. We send our condolencies to his family, and this is what Patsy said:

I was shocked to hear of the sudden death of my longtime friend Derek. He has played with Dermot O'Brien, with the Barleycorn, later with the Fureys, and he was loved by everyone. He was a top-of-the-range musician and he will be sorely missed as an artist and friend alike. He'll be in my prayers tonight.
