Gerry Fitzpatrick sends the sad news that Danny McCarthy, of Mentor Books, Sandyford, Dublin 18, and Kenmare, Co. Kerry, died suddenly on Thursday 18 May. Danny had a long and active history in trad, folk, and other acoustic music circles, which included his organising (together with Gerry and the BIB editor) the weekly sessions in Rosie O'Grady's bar at Harold's Cross, Dublin, in 2005-7.
