Fisherman John by Maggie Duffy

Original Song

I wrote this for my friend John’s family. John Quigley was a friend of mine, a well known and well loved character here in our little town of Brixham Devon UK. He was a master mariner, story teller , joker, and fine singer,..

When John passed away aged just 57 over 400 people crammed into our tiny Church of St Mary to bid him farewell. That was a while ago now but people still talk of John. I am humbled that my song is loved here and reminds people of a very special man.
