The bluegrass community in Ireland has lost another of its valued members. Breda Coleman and her husband P.J. are well and widely known as keen attenders of all major bluegrass events - and many minor ones as well - in this island, and as friends of many band members, for whom it has been a constant pleasure to meet them at venues throughout the country.
With deep regret, we have to report that Breda passed away last Friday morning. Tony O'Brien reports that the funeral is from Massey's Funeral Home in Finglas Village in north-west Dublin on Tuesday 21 June, to arrive at St Canice's church for 5.00 p.m. The burial will take place on Wednesday 22 June after 10 o'clock mass. A location map for the funeral home and the church can be found here; both are just off the main Finglas Road.
Our sympathies go out to P.J., family, and friends in their loss.
