Legendary singer Liam Clancy has died aged 74.
Liam Clancy, the famed "last man standing" from the Clancy Brothers and Tommie Makem, died in Ireland today.
Clancy, who had been ill for some time, died in hospital in Cork.
The youngest of 11 children, Clancy followed his brothers Paddy and Tom to New York from Carrick on Suir.
Paddy and Tom were already performing in the Big Appple with well-known Armagh singer Tommy Makem and young Liam joined up with them.
Performing as The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem they became international stars after a performance on the Ed Sullivan show.
Bob Dylan said Liam was "the best ballad singer I've ever heard" died in hospital in Cork early this afternoon
The Clancys' mother sent them all their trademark Aran jumpers fearing her boys would freexe in the harsh New York winters.
The band's treatment of traditional ballads played a vital role in the 1960s folk revival.
When the band broke up, as all good bands eventually do, Liam went solo in Canada but reunited with Tommy Makem to form Makem and Clancy.
The entire band got back together in the 1980s.
