Fiddle-player and piper Tom Mulligan(1915 to 1984), from Bornacoola Co. Leitrim.
Tom arrived into the Dublin music in 1935 and he was a founding member of St Mary’s Music Club in Church Street, Dublin.
Tom Mulligan’s legacy has now spread through his family and children to an upcoming generation of many grandchildren and beyond now playing and carrying on this great musical heritage. He was one of the unsung heroes of Irish musical life over many decades in the Dublin music scene. A man who carried his musical legacy with passion, pride and humility and who embraced, cherished and influenced Irish music and culture in a most loving way.
