Irish singer and songwriter Tommy Makem has died at his home in Dover, N.H.
The 74-year-old, who passed away on Wednesday, had been battling lung cancer, according to his family.
Makem hit the music world as part of The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem in the late 1950s and 1960s.
I remember my Dad listening to Makem and the Clancy Brothers quite a lot when I was young. They were good at what they did, and this is very sad. Here they are doing "The Rocky Road To Dublin."
