Default Timmy the Brit, RIP.

Sorry to hear that he has died. Forever associated with the Cork Folk Festival.
One charming man.

A martyr for the set dancing, so he was.

Timmy, I don't say Rest in Peace, I say "keep on dancing Biy, keep on dancing, round the house and mind the dresser"

Physically of normal stature but a Giant in his achievements, went collecting old dances that would have been lost forever. Filled dance halls all over Ireland and Britain. Taught set dancing all over the globe.

They'll be a mighty hooley up in the ballroom in the sky tonight.

That short youtube documentary above is an eloquent tribute.
