Aslan star Pat Fitzpatrick has sadly passed away following a battle with cancer.

The keyboard player, who performed with the band for over 20 years, died in the early hours of this morning.

Taking to social media, his bandmates wrote, “As recently as 11 days ago he was rocking the roof off the Cork Opera House with us and stayed up for drinks with us and his wife Rebecca.

“We have great memories of all the great gigs we did together; Vicar Street, The Olympia on Paddy’s Eve, The INEC Killarney and lots more.

“We will miss you, Pat. RIP from all the Aslan camp; Christy, Alan, Joe, Billy, Rod, Svenn, Mark, Smokie, Edgee, Archie and Frank.”

Bandmate Christy Dignam, who is also battling cancer at the moment, spoke to the Irish Sun, paying a heartfelt tribute to his good pal.

“Fitzy has left a huge hole being in our lives, both as a musician and a friend,” he said.

“It wasn’t just music, Fitzy was a lovely human being. He played with such feeling.”
