    Alec went on to make a final duet album with Frankie Gavin, bookending the original Shannachie LP, and also a beautiful cd with his son Cian Finn, of traditional Irish songs. That was his last official release, sadly. But so glad that he made these, with a dollop of encouragement from his friends.

    Hard to believe that itís coming up for a year since this great, clever, funny and hugely talented pal left us so suddenly. It was an enormous privilege to have known him, played music by his side, and enjoyed such hilarious times in his unique company. Miss you hugely, Alec, as do so very many, but will keep your flame alive while I can.

    Good to see that the excellent team at TG4 are reshowing this lovely portrait of his life again. Seems to work for me.

    His legacy will be in safe hands with you, Kevin. The music lives on.

    I was just listening to the album he and Frankie Gavin played together last night (I called it the Finn Gavin album). What a masterpiece. Every piece on that album still moves me. Can't believe it's been a year.
