Doireann Garrihy shares family heartbreak as grandfather passes away

Doireann Garrihy has revealed the sad news that her Grandfather has passed away. Sharing a picture last night as she made the trip back home to Clare she said;

“On the road to County Clare. Last night, our beloved Grandad Chris left this world.”

“95 years of music, laughter and love. It’s so hard to hit the road knowing we won’t be met by his smiley eyes or his concertina magic when we arrive in The Banner.”

“We’ll do our best to give him the send of he deserves this weekend.”

Only last week the DJ shared a gorgeous picture of her Grandad Chris with her little niece, Líobhan. Doireann’s sister, Aoibhinn also posted the snap captioned;

“This is 95 + 9 months! Líobhan and her Great Grandad Chris Droney today, both smiling in September 2020…what a precious life.”

Our thoughts are with the Garrihy family at this time.
