Michael Flatley’s mother passed away yesterday morning.
The dancer, who was very close with his mother Eilish, took to Facebook to announce the heartbreaking news last night.
“My dear mother Eilish passed away this morning. She is now with my father in heaven,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
“Words cannot express myself and my family’s sadness at this time. May God rest her soul.”
The Irish-American star’s father passed away in 2015 and he was extremely close to both of his parents and credited them with his outstanding successes.
Our thoughts are with Michael and his family at this difficult time.
