Dennis Cahill died with his wife Mary by his side on Monday evening. Tributes have since poured in for the renowned guitarist and Irish traditional musician.

His death was announced by pal Jimmy Keane on his website, posting: “Our dearest Dennis passed away peacefully on Monday evening, with his beloved Mary by his side as she has throughout his journey.

“Just moments before — we were comforting Dennis while The Lament for Limerick from Dennis’ album with Martin was on in the background — and as the track advanced to My Love is in America, Mary turned off the player, leaned over to hug and kiss Dennis one last time – and then he was gone…

“Too heartbroken to write any more… Play a tune today. Sing a song. Tell a corny joke. Sip a whiskey. Cherish a memory…

“My loving condolences to Mary, Cliodhna, the Cahill family, and all of Dennis’ many friends… Love you Dennis and rest gently in peace…”
