Farewell to a Dublin icon

TODAY we remember a true Dublin legend. The passing of Barney McKenna, banjo player and member of The Dubliners, marks the end of the last link to the original group.

With Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly and Ciaran Bourke, Barney blazed a trail.

Today, fans will -- ironically given The Dubliners' image -- be denied a chance to raise a glass to Barney in their local. But he'll be remembered fondly for many, many years to come.
