Fergal O’Mahony…our little tribute to a big man.

Without a doubt Arts Insight would not be where it is today without Fergal. Not only was he an inspirational role model to every single child he met. His musical genius enabled us to reach out and engage even the most challenging cases. With Fergal by my side I felt invinsible. He was the best wing man I could ask for, so kind, funny, trustworthy, reliable easy going and just brilliant to be around.

Fergal always made every child feel at ease with his effortlessly laid back manner. He mesmerised them with his piano playing. Made them laugh, got them on side and pushed them to be the best they could be.

But what I am eternally indebted to him for is exposing them to his music. The most amazingly powerful music that has such an impact at every school and I know is something that will stay with these children forever.

No words can describe how grateful I am that I was able to meet and work with Fergal, I am so honoured and blessed to be able to share his music with people for years to come. And I am so comforted that he will live on through his music and be part of my life and Arts Insight forever.

He was not only an inspiration to the children, teachers and parents, photographers, mayoral candidates, I could go on… he met. He was such an inspiration to me, irreplaceable on every level who will live on in a million happy memories and of course through his music.

Everyone whose lives he touched are so privileged. We can’t see you everyday but we can hear you.

Thank you Fergal you will always be in our hearts.
