He died on 18th Dec 2020 .

We got married when he came out of hospital on 25th July, again in the garden with all our musician friends from Donegal there.

His website is

He had fought for social justice his whole life and even in Hospital he was campaigning for the nurses and low paid carers who looked after him .He dictated letters to me to write to Care managers about their low pay .
