It was with great sadness that Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy learned that its President, Seán Potts, has passed away. He made a huge contribution to the development of uilleann piping at the School and he was a constant & supportive presence for his fellow musicians. Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy extend their deepest sympathies to his wife Bernie and to his family.
