Passing of Joe Burke

We, the committee of The Joe Mooney Summer School, are very saddened to hear of the passing of Joe Burke RIP. Joe was one of our tutors, with his wife Anne for many years and was held in very high esteem both here in Drumshanbo and world wide as a renowned accordion player. He will be missed but never forgotten. Condolences to Anne and the extended Burke and Conroy families. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
