                                      MARTIN McGINLEY 01/04/69-09/03/2011

We have decided to keep our obituary to Martin McGinley on this page as a memorial but separate from all of our distinguished other guests. We will never forget Martin and I'm sure the rest of you won't either x


As some of you may be aware by now last week we received the devastating news of the sudden passing of our very close friend Martin McGinley.

We had the great pleasure to call Martin a friend and he provided us with endless hours of happiness, love, laughter and music. Whether it was with his brother Mick and their pal Digger as part of the legendary McGinley's (no 2 gigs ever the same) or as a founder member of The Donkees or even just on his own with a guitar, Martin had a talent that was unique, endearing and surpassed only by his modesty.

His love of music and the craic was unrivalled; often sending out enthusiastic text's to tell us that a certain song was on the radio at any one time. Martin took such pleasure from music and the company of his many, many friends and in return we all adored him for the pleasure he bought into our lives.
His encouragement and appreciation of others music (he even called us "un-notdanceable" once - we're still not sure if this was a compliment but we know for sure that it was meant to be) was a mark of his generosity, quick to praise and even quicker to smile and always with a twinkle in his eyes.

Martin was simply great company.

The list of memories we have been left with is endless and there will forever be places, songs and moments that will raise a smile - Martin dancing at Maguire’s completely oblivious to his trousers sliding down is just one of hundreds not to mention the many wonderful, post gig hours listening to him belt out obscure classics with a guitar in his hand.

We'll miss Martin, we loved him dearly and the world is a poorer place for his passing.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Con and Nora, Mick, Anthony, Bridget and
Dee and also to anyone else who will miss him as much as we will.


See Ya Kid x x x x x
