Good ole Willie is always smiling no matter the weather! He never gets up to leave, even when there's a swarm of terrible musicians playing horrendous music beside him. A true Irish legend and an inspiration to us all!

This new statue in Main Street, Miltown Malbay, is a well deserved tribute to Willie Clancy, the legendary Irish Uileann piper! There's a fantastic music festival every July in his honour.

Willie Clancy deserves to be where everyone can see him. He brings so much business to the town every year. Great to see this.

Willie was a world famous Irish Artist.. But facing the shops on the side of the street is not the place to have his statue.... there are plenty of places on the Main street where he could be set back from the road and benches...More

Day and night, winter and summer, people are reminded of this sadly departed but wonderful uileann pipe player. The summer school named after him is now a popular annual event.
