The Arts Council has expressed its regret at the death of musician and composer Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin.
Sheila Pratschke, Chair of the Arts Council said, “Mícheál made a great and distinctive contribution to Ireland’s cultural life through his many gifts as a composer, musician, academic, broadcaster and educator. Interweaving his classical music training with a deep love, respect and knowledge of traditional music and song, he was a distinctive and important voice in Irish music and music education. A dynamic personality, full of positive energy and humour and with a great gift for communication and friendship, Mícheál leaves a rich body of work and a great legacy of inspiration as a musician, educator and friend which will undoubtedly carry through generations to come. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal."
