Clive Collins

Eamonn Quigley forwards the sad news that Clive Collins, a member of the old-time/ folk/ bluegrass community in Ireland for over thirty years, died recently while travelling in Mexico and the United States. Clive, who formerly played fiddle with the Higglers Jug Band and other groups in the Galway area, was found dead - as far as we know, from natural causes - in a house that he had been minding for its owner.
